1/2 way home with the U.S. Justice Department clearing the way for Oracle to purchase Sun. Now if the EU gets on board Oracle with revolutionize the IT world. Can you imagine Star Office being sold on a subscription basis on the cloud and the data can reside on a Oracle storage device or on your own device.

I can envision Oracle giving away the Netbook for the recurring subscription revenue of let's say $25 a month. With a couple hundred million Microsoft Office users out there this can add up to some real revenue:). Then there is middle ware and the new applications fusion products.

Oracle is the IT company of the future. They will be able to undercut, destroy and spit out and all the rest. I cannnot wait to see this play out.
