As if Larry Ellison, owner
of America's largest yacht
, didn't already have enough money, his company
goes out and increases
revenue by 27 percent and profits by 35 percent
in its latest quarter.
It turns out the $20 billion Ellison shelled out to buy a bunch of high-end
software companies was money well-spent.
What's really interesting is that Oracle is becoming less and less of a database
company, and more and more an enterprise application vendor. But what really
makes me happy is that Larry has finally stopped mouthing off about Bill Gates!
