      Nefarious or Opportunistic?? ,I dint find it either way,probably what people call inorganic growth-Strong business sense

      The company(s) that were taken over,say Siebel or Peoplesoft look OK now.The company that took over faced job cuts,re-alignment issues,and what not.
      But the bottom line is,business sense is business sense-right?
      U would be knowing this more than I do-U and I are writing-away/commenting-on blogs to glory mainly because this platform exists,and its existence is based on business sense.Anyway,nice compilation of Oracle's targets.
