    I would say more high-end systems and reliable DBs

    Not too long ago one would've thought this acquisition would've been the other way around. I suspect it'll lead to a more robust database platform but with SQL Server getting better and better, who knows what that'll buy long-term. Oh, and maybe the business world will get a bullet-proof, unhackable OS out of it - like what Oracle was supposed to be a few years back. Yeah right.

    Probably they are going to get new profits from selling MySQL. No more a competitor. SUN will be reenforced because of implementations like exadata machine. Java is going to be more "proprietary". And perhaps the best implementations will be made on Web Logic server. But, how is going to be the support of all of this? Regards Uno
