Oracle vs. Google, OpenSolaris

I'm asking myself what Oracle thinks is in it for them. I really don't think that even if they win this the end result will be a positive one for them. To my understanding the primary customers of Oracles software are developers and they are pissing of a lot of them right now. They are generating a lot of FUD on their own products.

There are a lot of people blogging about that, and it generally doesn't look like its going anywhere good for Oracle. Even if Google is the "bad" one here it's still a lot of bad PR for Oracle. Bad PR that directly hits Oracles Customers.

I guess it will take years for that lawsuit to settle ...
