re: Oracle, Google Trial: Goliath Vs. Goliath
Oracle bought Sun to use its patents as a club to beat Google. Google should have bought Sun--many Google engineers started at Sun. Much of Google was built on Sun Sparc hardware using Sun-developed Solaris and Java software. Their people hung-out together. Not buying Sun when it was failing was the single biggest mistake in Google's short history. They know it, now. It's why they bought Motorola, to save Motorola, keep it out of Darth Ellison's starship.
