Microsoft Tries To Break Up Oracle-Sun Party
It's a done deal in the U.S., but the European Union's regulators still have to approve Oracle's purchase of Sun. And guess who's going to be there to try to put the kibosh on the whole thing? Oh, yes. Microsoft.
What's funny is that, just about the time the Microsoft-in-Brussels news came out on this, the infamous Neelie Kroes, the European Commission's competition commissioner and no friend to Microsoft over the years, started expressing optimism about the Oracle-Sun deal.
Hey, Redmond, maybe you should have left well enough alone on this one. You're not exactly anybody's guest of honor in Brussels these days.
