It's Hardware, Stupid

Vindication is comforting, even sweet. Sometime back, I postulated that Oracle had reasons for acquiring Sun, and said reasons were not those from the usual suspects/pundits. The reason is simple: Oracle is after the last significant market segment it doesn't currently hold, IBM's mainframe customer. For that, Oracle requires mainframe power machines, and Sun has such. Along comes Brian Aker at O'Reilly with his take on the buyout. TaDa, hardware. Schweeeeeeeet.
