Sun and Oracle - the romance ends?

Recent news from Sun makes it appear the Oracle romance might be at an end. Sun has annouced N1 support for SAP to give it a leg up in the SAP marketplace. It is also including PostgreSQL in the next release of Solaris 10 in June. It sure looks like Larry Ellison is being given the cold shoulder.

This is good for Sun. Since Oracle never got with the open source thing the romance has been on the rocks. The old days of Sun E25k servers running huge Oracle databases have gone. The zeitgeist is with FOSS and that's where Sun is headed.
