Oracle has started giving out some official information about its strategies with Sun. Larry Ellison just told us that Oracle is committed to keep on Sparc and Sun hardware development (cited by many, e.g. Reuters ). So, we can start throwing in the basket the first half of wrong forecasts by "experts" that surely predicted the dismission of that compartment... Let's hope Oracle will give us some more news about the single software product strategies.
"We are definitely not going to exit the hardware business," Ellison said in an email interview with Reuters. "If a company designs both hardware and software, it can build much better systems than if they only design the software. That's why Apple's (AAPL.O ) iPhone is so much better than Microsoft (MSFT.O ) phones."
