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.

What one assumes to be likely doesn't automatically turn in to solid proof.

Companies sue each other al the time. Google tried to rip Oracle off with Java, Oracle was bound to sue them. A number of Android device makers ripped off Apple with their iOS imitations, Apple was also bound to sue. And why would Microsoft pass up any easy money if companies use stuff they own the patents to?

Google & friends created a situation that almost forced companies to take legal action. Companies don't start suing to do another company a favor, unless there is something in it for them and so they might as well sue without any deal.
