> A. I actually heard this from a customer. It was ironic because in order for them to buy more products from us (or use a cloud service offering), they’d have to sign – a license agreement! With the same terms that the customer had already admitted violating. “Honey, if you won’t let me cheat on you again, our marriage is through.” “Ah, er, you already violated the ‘forsaking all others’ part of the marriage vow so I think the marriage is already over.”
What a thoroughly nasty comment. She is comparing her customer with someone who is cheating on their spouse. Disgusting.
Because her text will probably only infuriate people that will arguably never be Oracle customers?
As a sysadmin with customers who run oracle, and who put some stock in what I say, I can say I am more likely to warn people away from oracle in the future. While in some companies, tech purchasing decisions are made by suits with little or no input from techies, that's not universal.
Except it is if you are really concerned about security or have a backbone Oracle don't want to waste time on trying to sell to you.
