Oracle's back on Solaris and Sun

According to this article (which Jonathan's cryptic blog entry hinted at, Oracle is reversing their RedHat on x86 bias:
Oracle has chosen the Solaris 10 Operating System, Sun's multi-platform, open source OS, as its preferred development and deployment platform for most x64 architectures, including x64 AMD Opteron and Intel Xeon processor-based systems and Sun's UltraSPARC-based systems. The Solaris 10 OS will be used throughout Oracle's development organization. Oracle also plans to release and ship 64- bit versions of all Oracle products on the Solaris OS prior to or simultaneous with the release of its products on other operating systems.
Now Larry, when are you going to come to the party regarding pricing on CMT processors? IBM and MicroSoft already have, so what's taking you so long?

I work at Oracle in the Solaris group. The opinions expressed here are entirely my own, and neither Oracle nor any other party necessarily agrees with them.
