"Oracle has replaced Microsoft as the FOSS community's number
one enemy, according to Adobe System's open source boss.
"David McAllister, the Flash and Photoshop maker's open source
and standards director, said in a blog post yesterday that the
implosion of the OpenSolaris Governing Board highlighted how "the
axis of evil has shifted south about 850 miles or so".
"The lack of love Oracle has shown for the "open source culture
of Sun [Microsystems]" since Larry Ellison's company bought the
MySQL database firm earlier this year has unnerved many in the FOSS
world. And McAllister couldn't resist putting the boot in about the
whole sorry affair."
