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.

Oracle is worse than M$, Apple and SCO combined! You all saw what they did with OpenOffice! If some company needs to bleed, it's Oracle! >:|

What exactly Oracle did with OpenOffice?

They try to make money with it, not to close it or something like that. When they understand that unfortunately this is not profitable they give it away to Apache. The best option could be Open Document Foundation but still OpenOffice is open source maintained by company supported open source software.

If MS couldn't make profit from Visio they probably will kill it.
