I just received the following email:
Re: Need a favor - Oracle
You are not going to believe this. Some VMware folks met with Charles Phillips, the president or CEO of Oracle and he said no customers had ever mentioned to him that they wanted Oracle to support their products on VMware. Or modify the licensing scheme. He offered if anyone knew of customers who did want better or more support for Oracle on VMware, or virtualization friendly licensing, to email him directly. His email is Charles.email@example.com and he really needs to hear that customers run Oracle on VMware, and better support / licensing would be nice!
For any customers who are interested in Oracle on VMware, please send email to Mr. Phillips directly.
