Official Doc Reveals Oracle's Cloud Rules 84

Posted by timothy
from the don't-tell-everyone-at-once dept.
itwbennett writes "In an official document that is both 'confidential' and publicly available on Oracle's website, the company lays out its cloud policies. Most of the policies follow industry standards, but then there are a few that should give customers pause. Like the one that allows Oracle to turn off access to accounts in the event of a dispute or account violation."

"Star Wars is adolescent nonsense; Close Encounters is obscurantist drivel; Star Trek can turn your brains to puree of bat guano; and the greatest science fiction series of all time is Doctor Who! And I'll take you all on, one-by-one or all in a bunch to back it up!"

As Birdy said:

It isn't just a GUI, browser and web server on that 1.44MB floppy. It's: boot loader, QNX real-time micro-kernel, process manager with full Unix/POSIX semantics, device manager, network manager, Unix filesystem, TCP/IP stack, ramdisk, auto hardware detection, XVGA graphics drivers, full windowing GUI, 3D vector graphics, web browser, web server, and demo applications. And with a little hacking you can open up a shell too. All in 1.44MB. Yes. Really.

Here's a link to the original demo:

Here's the slashdot article on it:

And to all those Amiga folks who will jump in and say, "The Amiga could do that too!", no the Amiga had most of the graphical stuff in ROM...
