We are already seeing many WLS customers moving to GF because of the price differential (and quality too, not our words, theirs!). The impact of an acquisition should give the BEA customers extra motivation to consider whether to move. We - of course! - think GF is a better solution than Oracle, so... more customers moving to GlassFish.

We will see how it goes; many analysts expect oracle to raise its offer. An interesting business we are in, aren't we? Never boring :-)
