What is happening is that the Ponytailed CEO is wonderful at blogging and articulating his zen thoughts, but, when it comes down to actually building a profitable business or trying to sell a dying one, he is know wheres to be found. The Ponytail does not have a backup plan so I cannot see how JAVA was the one who imposed the restrictions on the deal. JAVA is cooked. As usual, the ones that get hurt from poor management are the employees, customers and shareholders. I doubt if this is positioning ploy by either company.

Maybe Oracle will pick up the company for a 2-3 billion and get a decent operating system to give away instead of a rebranded Redhat product.
