Oracle and SUN Now that Hewlett-Packard appears to be a little tipsy, not really knowing where it is and what it's doing, Reuters is reporting that the company is working on selling its webOS operating system. HP acquired webOS as part of its purchase of Palm, made a big fuss about the whole thing, and then let it fizzle out. The company rumoured buy webOS? Oracle.

I think that's exactly correct. I think Thom's article has a dig at the "botched" acquisition, but has no information to back it up.

Oracle is obviously far less pro-open source than Sun was, but then, Oracle is hugely profitable, Sun was not.

Open Source is fine if you can make it work, but the way Sun was doing it just did not make any sense.
