Microsoft and Cloud Computing

Interesting article. Not surprised about Microsoft's concerns since this gives a lower TCO to many businesses and affects Microsoft's financial bottom line.

James Gosling's So Long to Sun.

I was pretty moved and I got some tears in my eyes reading today's posting in his blog.

Sun and Oracle ... finally

With the highly anticipated Oracle acquisition of Sun Microsystems without any more roadblocks ahead, I am really excited to see what Larry Ellison and Scott McNealy will unveil January 27th as the unified vision and roadmap of both companies as one.
The future of MySQL seems to be what concerned the most to the EU. I wonder what will happen to GlassFish, since Oracle has had their own J2EE Application Server and also WebLogic since they acquired BEA.
I am hoping Oracle leaves Java alone with the same model it has had under the JCP.
Definitely it's going to be exciting what happens in the days ahead with the Sun setting ...
