There's a seeminly unrelated detail in that article:
HP is suing Oracle for its decision to stop writing software to run on Itanium-based servers in a move to get customers to buy Oracle's SPARC/Solaris Unix platform servers.
I don't like Oracle, but that seems like a very weak and pointless court case.

If those linux servers are exploding when they are sold, I don't want one.
