I can even find a place for UML in the nerd-ish pantheon 🙂 For this product all bets are off. I’m struggling to find a silver lining in the cloud.”

This reinforces an opinion I’ve held for some time (of course I’m biased): Outside of their database, I have found that Oracle’s core competencies are really just pretty packaging, compelling charts, and flashy contracts.
