Geva Perry: Thinking Out Cloud: Ellison's Anti-Cloud Computing Rant

As I and others have already pointed out several times, Oracle is the company of status quo. Things are very good for Oracle the way they are exactly now -- any change is unwelcome. They make money by having high-paid aggressive sales people shove big stacks of software down customers throat, forcing them to buy this software with up-front, fully paid-up prepetual licenses. They then continue to make profit from these customers by selling them annual maintenance fees, most of which customers don't need or use ... So take Larry at his word when he says Oracle is not going to change anything but marketing.
