Thread regarding Oracle Corp. layoffs

Mark Hurd dumps Sparc team.

Sparc CPU team: 30% (~600 headcount) were let go

Sparc System team: 42% (50% in CA, 34% in MA, ~120 headcount) were let go

Sparc SW/FW team: ~40% were let go.

Rest of the team is more for sustaining, not much development going on. Plus, attrition is on going.

Those of you who are on SPARC and think you survived, are disillusioned. Everything linked to SPARC will be gone within an year or so... Find a job while there isn't a glut of engineers in the job market. Oracle is doing it slowly so they don't have to announce.

Fowler runs that group, not Hurd. And Fowler reports to Larry.

Get your facts straight ;P.

It took me this many times to notice that this is meant to be sung to the tune of "Bohemian Rhapsody". Kudos!

@LsIZB0T Your CPU headcount number is way, way off. About one third of your number.

Didn't think the Systems reported through him. Doesn't that one ex- Sun VP guy report directly to that one other really rich guy?
