Categories: general

Oracle has entered a definitive agreement to acquire Sun for $9.50 per share in cash. Read more details in Sun’s PR and Oracle’s PR.

Here are some tweets captured from the Twitterverse on GlassFish:

And there is certainly buzz at MySQL Users Conference about the announcement. Only time will tell the future and fate of this blog!

It seems there is only one other entry tagged Oracle on this blog ;-)

  4. I would recommend deleting any older postings you had about Oracle when it was a competitor to Sun and start producing some new postings highlighting your new company’s products (including those of Sun). That’s the job of a paid tech evangelist–highlight and promote your company’s products, whatever that company is. Keep working!
