So everyone who hopes not to get laid off better hope LE has the magic touch, stays vigorous and the product development he is leading goes well!

When TK, a high-profile former Oracle executive, left the software company last September, his peers at the database software company expected Oracle to replace him. But LE, Oracle’s co-founder and chief technology officer, had other plans.,. In a meeting shortly after the departure of TK, LE surprised his inner circle by saying he was excited to personally take over the duties of the former product development leader, according to a former Oracle employee with direct knowledge of his comments.


LE is the father of two t#ddlers, according to multiple people who know LE. At an event at his home in San Francisco last fall, Mr. Ellison told a group of entrepreneurs about his delight at spending time with his young ch#ldr#n. “This is the happiest I have ever been,” he said, according to an account by one of the entrepreneurs, SV, which he posted on his company’s website. “He’s changing [email protected],” one of the people who knows LE said.

--

LE shows up at Oracle headquarters—a cluster of mirrored-glass buildings in Redwood City, Calif.—roughly three days a week, during which he meets senior executives for hours each of those days, according to a former Oracle employee who was present in some of these meetings. LE, who started out as a programmer, often spends time in those meetings analyzing competing products and discussing how Oracle’s own can be better, said another former Oracle employee who has seen this firsthand.

It appears that LE plans to continue overseeing product development at Oracle for the foreseeable future, which doesn’t surprise people who have known LE for years.

Scratching my head to come up with one useful skill or capability LE brings to this job that would be useful and help oracle but I keep coming up empty.

Would anybody ever hire him for this job if he wasn’t the co-founder and the largest shareholder? Of course not, not with his track record. He would even get an interview.

To bad, old daddy LE had one supporter at least. Posted a rant yesterday but it's gone now.

Oh sure, it’s ok to be north of 70 and head of product development, chairman emeritus, have toddlers, etc yet oversee a company in an industry where youth is gold and age is......what you find in a toddler’s diaper. You s---, LE. Evil, hypocritical, nasty, with no ideas of your own.

Those product analysis meetings with a guy who probably has not coded since his first set of [email protected] were born three decades ago must be riveting. Sure to lead to market dominance in new areas.

Shows BG and even SB at Microsoft, for sure PA, were smarter and more insightful. A trillion dollars worth.

And therein lies the problem - he just can’t let go although he clearly should have a long time ago. Just look at BG and MSFT - that’s a smart dude, whose wealth has skyrocketed because he let go. LE not so smart, which too bad for shareholders and employees alike.
