Quotes

"Microsoft CEO and incontinent over-stater of facts Steve Ballmer said that "Linux is a cancer that attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches," during a commercial spot masquerading as a media interview with the Chicago Sun-Times."
"Mirantis will use the funds to double its engineering investments. It will focus on development of its zero lock-in OpenStack software, including its downloadable distribution, Mirantis OpenStack , and its on-demand, hosted option, Mirantis OpenStack Express . Mirantis is currently the No. 3 contributor to OpenStack and will continue contributing to the community, with particular focus on enterprise-grade reliability and ease-of-use. The funds will also be used to accelerate international expansion in Europe and Asia-Pacific, deepen its bench of support engineers, and grow its open partner ecosystem ."
...So, some folks are calling for a fork of Debian if Jackson's resolution isn't passed saying, "If systemd will be substituting SystemV in Debian, we will fork the project and create a new distro: Pure Debian by Veteran Unix Admins ."
"We're the only company with a full suite of SaaS applications. In addition to the suite, each application is best of breed...I think it's about the [intellectual property]. We bring to market what [Oracle customers] actually use in production [on-premises]. I think it's difficult for a customer to say, I'm going to build something in the cloud and then convert that to another set of technologies. There are no conversions to do after you've built it. For PaaS, the real attractive part of the market is in [development and testing]."
