Oracle buying Sun? Doesn’t compute… or does it?
Clearly this is not a charity sale. Mr. Ellison is way more savvy than that, and he had to outbid Big Blue to do this. So, why is Oracle really buying Sun? It has to be the software – duh! Between Java, Solaris and MySQL, I’m sure there are plenty of nuggets to justify the $5.6B price tag (accounting optics factored in).
Good move indeed Mr. Ellison. I’m putting my money where my mouth is and doubling my long term bet on ORCL, and BTW, the pun was intended.
