Every where I've gone, I've always seen Oracle on Sun as the way to go... Oh sure we tried Oracle on Netware (good god! what a disaster), and on NT...(well it kinda ran..., but boy was it cheap!). Now we went the way with Linux (RHEL4) and it's been such a massive uphill battle to get things going on it... I had planned to shift to Oracle on Solaris x64 (for money/time).. I just hope it still has a future at Oracle.

The support contract for RHEL is ~1k a year per machine, but they've been less then useful. Heck after the last round of updates for Oracle, I had to get some files from the LHC people...

From http://c0t0d0s0.org

“Those of us feeling left in the dark might be pleased to know that build 134a, the first candidate for the next stable release of OpenSolaris, has been tagged in Oracle’s release branch (in project jargon: “snv_134a, the first respin of 134, closed earlier this week”). A packaged build should be available for internal QA soon, but even if it passes, it will be while some time before the release can be published to the external repo.“

I have to wonder if Oracle is discovering a few new things about China. All the OpenSolaris stuff and a bunch of other Sun software development moved to Beijing.

You can not just kick people out in the cold here while blathering about "our most important asset is our people." If Oracle wants to ever do any business in China, they are stuck with the staff in Beijing. What to do with it ?

I can just see the look on Larry's face when he discovers that he can't just "Ahh, we'll close that stupid OpenSolaris crap down asap." There was no reason for Sun to worry about Solaris being pirated but does Oracle want Oracle code distributed to the PLA then worldwide ? heh heh heh :D

Could be fun to watch and a good topic for an article for someone. Chinese laws do not even resemble what Oracle is used to. Globalization, ain't it grand ?
