this is the sun oracle merger from the sun page.
On April 20, 2009, Sun and Oracle announced a definitive agreement under which Oracle will acquire Sun common stock for $9.50 per share in cash. The transaction is valued at approximately $7.4 billion, or $5.6 billion net of Sun's cash and debt. The proposed transaction is subject to Sun stockholder approval, certain regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions. Until the deal closes, each company will continue to operate independently, and it is business as usual.

Are Commercial Databases Worth It? - Coding the Wheel
I've worked with expensive SQL Server and Oracle setups for most of my career. I've defended them viciously against all comers and contrarians. I've participated in late-night guerilla flame wars and drunken bar brawls. And I've sought out with relentless tunnel vision those pieces of propaganda which support my foregone conclusion: that SQL Server and/or Oracle are (or were) the best choices for the organization. I used to be a commercial database advocate. These databases have put food on my table for a dozen years, you see. I am (or was) what you might call an entrenched practicioner, not necessarily an expert, but a practicioner. And in the manner of entrenched practicioners around the world, I've treated you heretics with the sadistic undercutting and poisonous rancor you've deserved! "MySQL?" I would sneer. "PostgreSQL? Thanks, but this a serious project. We need a database we can depend on." Ahem.
