Wow – we used to think of Microsoft as a scary company.

In just one week Oracle has promised to eliminate live source code repositories for OpenSolaris, effectively making it “not quite open” (blogspot.com) and filed a lawsuit against Google over its use of the Java programming language (www.computerworld.com).

Nice to see that they are putting Sun’s assets to good use.

To the folks at Oracle: is this the sort of behavior that your customers ask for?
