Where is TK anyway ?

How do you get used to it?

Has anybody managed to get used to not having any semblance of job security? I keep hoping it's going to get easier, but that has not been the case. At least not for me. Every new day and every new week is a renewed source of stress for me. How do... read more

Now SPARC and Solaris are really dead

Hello, ex Sun Microsystems employee here, working in Fujitsu engineering since 2010. Posting here since I think this is more relevant to Oracle given we sell SPARC basically only in Japan. During the last year Oracle and Fujitsu worked for an highly... read more

Any thing after SPARC M8?

Given all this renewed interest in on premise, does Oracle have anything after M8? At one point there was a public roadmap slide that suggested incremental improvements to M8. What's the plan for existing SPARC/Solaris customers? Anyone know?

Oracle Survey

If I still have a job after how I filled out the survey, they must be relatively confidential. I was not offensive but I certainly called out specific EVPs and SVPs on their behavior and lack of leadership. If I recall, I said I trust my direct... read more

Confirmed. Various GBU units affected on the support side, so I'm sure it's not just the Springs that got hit today. The ones I've personally seen leave are the highly experienced, middle age, white men if that is an indicator of what is to come or... read more

More BS jobs at Oracle

Why is Oracle creating BS jobs after BS jobs. The Larry hires 2 CEOs to do his work? His 2 CEOs hire a bunch of VPs to their work. The VPs hire a bunch of directors to do their work. The directors hire a bunch of managers to do their work. The... read more


LE was a pre-boomer software lord. Held on to a mindboggling % of his company over 41 years. Most subsequent founders got WAY diluted. Maybe not a swell guy but a force. And a real taste for art, not just spike heels. Legacy just slip sliding away... read more
