Hi Solveig

It's not only about OpenOffice... What about MySQL, VirtualBox etc...?
I think that Oracle wants to sell a complete package: Hardware (Sun), OS (Solaris) and DB, so there is a big chance to OpenOffice to survive (Salaris needs the capabilities of OpenOffice)

Thanks you,
Ilan

Possibly Oracle would finally be the company that sees the value in effectively marketing the virtues of OpenOffice? To the correct target audience?

Wouldn't that be nice! I have been corresponding with a friend who works for Oracle, who says that they are good at adjusting strategies in a reasonably nimble and sensible way.

OpenOffice gives Larry Ellison a chance to undermine MicroSoft, which is his favorite hobby (See "Softwars", Larry's biography). MySQL isn't an alternative to an Oracle database, it's more like a kitset car vs a Mac truck (sorry, but would you run a Fortune 500 company on MySQL?) Oracle/Sun is a much better combo than IBM/Sun as it at last creates a real competitor to IBM rather than the Big Blue dinosaur getting even bigger than everyone else.

Yup... I think Openoffice could be a winner here. It gives Larry a chance to stick his finger in Microsofts eye.

I'm starting to feel the shiver of real optimism. Go Larry!
