"The terms “product suite” means Oracle software products that were offered on HP’s Itanium-based servers at the time Oracle signed the September 20, 2010 Settlement and Release Agreement, including any new releases, versions or updates of those products."

I guess they could ask for a stay while appealing. Meanwhile, the damage has already been done in my environment. I'll know in a few months how much damage, but I'd be surprised for the Itanics with Oracle to float past next year.

Then again, maybe Larry thinks he is Larry Hagman and has a devious J. R. Ewing card up his kimono.
