Oracle and SUN While the US Department of Justice has already given the green light to Sun's purchase by Oracle, the European Commission is a little more weary about possible antitrust issues. Neelie Kroes, EU commissioner for competition, is especially worried about the future of Sun's open source endeavours, specifically MySQL.

Total clowns...

IBM is now tearing the remaining life out of whats left as Sun remains frozen.

Antitrust against Oracle/Sun? Wake up EU - IBM is the one to watch out for, I've said it before and I'll say it again, Microsoft wish they knew half of the tricks that the B in IBM uses.

This merger is all that saves us from IBM. At least since IBM turned down buying Sun, they can't have a say on this.
