There are still a few stalwarts who believe that Oracle’s purchase of Sun will continue their favorite projects and products.
Then you see stuff like this:
Exclusive Little more than a month after acquiring Virtual Iron for an undisclosed fee, Oracle is effectively killing the company’s virtualization product.
In a letter to Virtual Iron’s sales partners, Oracle says it “will suspend development of existing Virtual Iron products and will suspend delivery of orders to new customers.” And in a second letter to a partner speaking with The Reg, the company says it will not allow partners to sell new licenses to anyone – including existing customers – after the end of this month (i.e. in 11 days). Before then, partners can only sell licenses to existing customers under certain conditions.
