5. Actually, this has far more to do with Larry Ellison's ego than Bush or
the economy.

Oracle is simply purchasing (and eliminating) the competition. A number of my friends will be really screwed by this. I hope Oracle loses HUGE $$$ on this sham.

6. LeftCoast is on the money...
...Larry Ellison couldn't care less about the employees of PeopleSoft, although I suspect a good number of them will be hired on with Oracle. He only wanted PeopleSoft to go away, and that's what he's spend the last couple of years doing. Making it go away.
