BTW in the background of MOS down, MOS down this article is veeeery ineteresting. It shows that Oracle's revenue for maintenance is $3.247 billion but expenses only $264 million, so the income percentage is fantastic.
So probably therefore MOS operation also is fantastic? :)

Of course the question remains how revenue and expenses (especially for maintenance) are counted and attributed.
