Buy Sun, Get 10.2 Free!

Sarcastic IT site El Reg has a report on the latest Sun and Oracle pricing move: buy an UltraSPARC server and get Oracle Enterprise Edition free. Well, we have to buy a year's worth of Oracle support but we'd all do that anyway, eh? The key thing about this is that the price is free regardless of how many processors the server has. Now that's the sort of licensing model everybody can understand.
