Since when is Oracle
In a lawsuit filed against the database giant by Hewlett-Packard
This comes only a couple of weeks after Oracle raised a lance for open court documents in its Android and Java lawsuit against Google
HP complains that Intel
Oracle doesn't buy it because Intel keeps making the Xeon product line better so fast that it will inevitably do everything the Itanium can do, just as well or even better. "Now HP is suing Oracle for the temerity to tell customers the truth," Oracle blasts in the latest court documents.
Will the courts set Oracle's business direction or tell HP to get over the loss of a dying platform? I'm leaning toward the latter option, but you just never know. I still think HP would be better off just buying out Intel's share of the Itanium design, which they developed together, and then farming out the production of the chip right back to Intel. But that makes too much sense to actually happen.
