If my memory serves me right, I said something similar when there was the ruckus with Oracle declining to support the Itanic chip. Her reaction was completely inadequate. I wouldn't be surprised if in a few years Oracle ended up owning HP as well. If Larry continues living for 100 more years, he'll end up owning IBM, Microsoft and Google, too.
