Subject: [sun] oracle's strategy

Oracle has published an faq doc on their site for clarifying sun acquisition. Just fyi

From what I could get -
- oracle plans to grow the sun hardware business

  • oracle will remain committed to Linux as ever. I could not get much on solaris support, except that oracle will further optimize the database on this platform.
  • MySQL will be an addition to the existing suite of databases. It will continue to function independently.
  • innovation and investment in java will continue. Java remains important for oracle's existing products also.
  • nothing on
