Well, if their behavior is anything like that in the "proprietary"
world. We know what kind of street cred they have.
Actually, Oracle is "giving back". They've open sourced a cluster
filesystem that is currently in the process of rolling into the
standard kernel (it may already be in, haven't checked in a while).
Oracle has a bunch of smart employees who will do the right thing
whether Larry likes it or not.
