BTW in the background of MOS down, MOS down this article http://www.informationweek.com/news/global-cio/security/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=222002898&cid=nl_IW_btl_2010-01-05_t 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.
