This is a direct shot at Microsoft. Balmer was stuck for words to comment on it, because M$ essentially has no way of responding to this.
In another coupla years Oracle is gonna have a turn-key solution to beat Win-servers out of DCs.
Microsoft's response will be to get into hardware as well, but it's a bit too late. I can see it already:
Balmer: Dell, are you for sale?
Dell: Get lost!
Balmer: AMD, are you for sale?
AMD: Say *wot*?
Balmer: Lenovo, are you for sale? Lenovo: Solly, no speak engrish Balmer: anyone for sale out there, we need to buy a server maker?(silence...) Received on Tue Apr 21 2009 - 08:05:12 CDT
