This ComputerWorld story is mostly about Sun's hopes in the software business - which can mostly be summed up by: "We give our software away; why the heck can't we make money that way?"
Well, to add to that exciting suite of revenue makers, Sun is eyeing PostgreSQL:
"We're not going to OEM Microsoft but we are looking at PostgreSQL right now," he said, adding that over time the database will become integrated into the operating system.
That's Loiacono, VP of their software business. So does PostgreSQL stay open source? Does it stay cross platform? Is Sun just going to bundle it, or buy it? This article seems unclear.
