Oracle and SUN When Oracle announced its intentions to buy Sun Microsystems, many were worried about the future of Sun's large open source software portfolio, which includes things like Solaris, Java, MySQL, and more. It seems like Oracle is still struggling with what to do with the large body of products Sun entails; they've started charging 90 USD per user for the Microsoft Office ODF plugin.

You can charge for support. I'd give you that. Charging for the plug-in, I'd give you that, albeit reluctantly. Charging almost as much as a cheap edition of Office for a plug-in that does a format conversion is ignorant. Surely!
