Major media seems to have missed one of the biggest plays in the history of Linux and the Open Source Software community with Oracle's purchase of SleepCat software. Who would have imagined such a strategic move? If Microsoft had thought of this, we'd be starting over from scratch on a new OS. They would own the Internet. Will Oracle, a proprietary database company, shutdown these major applications, give them to Sun or use them to take control of everyone? From the reports I'm reading, major media hasn't got it yet. But you should.
