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 agree with the comments here about Oracle being anti open source. They are a very successful money-making corporation, and open source gives them relatively meager revenue opportunity, so of course they tend to work against it where possible.

I don't agree with the negative comments about Oracle service and support. I've worked with the "big three" databases (Oracle, SQL Server, and IBM DB2) for many years, and Oracle service and support is very competitive.
