Yeah, we gave ourselves a pat on the back. So what?

Jesus. Talk about making a mountain out of a molehill. A bunch of people are bitching and complaining about this little press release we sent out yesterday. Look, all we did was talk about how Oracle offers small businesses practically every option they could ever want or need. What's so bad about that? I mean, really. Are you saying we're big and bad just because we can offer people the whole enchilada? Are you saying we're evil just because we don't sell people bits and pieces of crappy software that don't fit together? Please. That's called progress where I come from. And it's one of the many benefits of consolidation in the software industry.

I know there are plenty of turds out there who can't or won't want to understand this consolidation thing. So check this out. Maybe the next time you're in the market for a new car, you should try building it from scratch. Like, go around and buy every single part you need -- things like the fan belts and bolts and wheels and shit. Then put it all together by yourself. Then come back to me and tell me that vertical integration is a bad thing. Seriously. I'll be here waiting.
