I am thinking of making a cool cartoon of this one (giggle's evilly). But seriously, industry leaders are taking a huge notice to this and you know what that means. Yea, my mother-of-all prediction is coming. I'll share it on the ITtoolbox blogs tonight.
Mr Ellison has been characteristically dismissive. He recently compared the company to Netscape, and predicted that Microsoft would quickly eclipse it as it did the browser pioneer. For good measure, he added that the base layer of software on which virtualisation depends, called a hypervisor, was so simple that his cat could write it.
Ms Greene’s tart response, delivered during an interview with the Financial Times at VMware’s Silicon Valley headquarters: “If his very smart cat could write it, my very smart tortoise could write his database.”
For now, here'as the FT post.
