 Linux's Proprietary Booster

Linux Magazine talks to Larry Ellison.

"LM: But more realistically, do you think that Oracle's had to cede the lower end of the database market to MySQL to concentrate on the enterprise, or is that a customer base you wouldn't reach anyway?
ELLISON: No. It's a little bit like asking if we are worried about people who pirate Oracle. The people who pirate Oracle are not the people who would buy our database. The people who use MySQL are not the people who would buy our database. They don't have any money. If you have a real application, the first thing you tend to spend money on is a database."
