Pink Floyd

For those following that other story, what's Larry up to with Sun, I've been in the it's-about-taking-down-the-mainframe camp from the first nanosecond.  It's been kind of a small camp, amongst the Usual Pundit Suspects.  But today comes a bit of news along that line of thinking.

It's becoming clearer that Larry wants a database machine that can slurp up all those renegade IBM mainframe folks.  He knows he's got to get them off COBOL, somehow too, but first he needs a credible stack.  Another brick in the wall.
