Honestly, this is going to piss off a many CIO's.  I expect Oracle to lose customers over this. Their licensing's already draconian (even more than Microsoft for SQL Server), now they're forcing people to purchase unneeded hardware?  I wouldn't be surprised if PostgreSQL gains ground because of this.

The market doesn't want more proprietary lockin, and that's exactly what SPARC is.  The market wants portability, compatibility, and interoperable solutions.  Solaris and SPARC will never provide that, which is why killing their x86 server market (some of the nicest server and storage hardware on the market, but at a premium) will ultimately be the end of Oracle hardware all together.

Its a shitty company that makes shitty product. They must be good at giving bribes since lot of agencies in the govt use them and suing successful companies to survive is not beneath them.
