Like spoilt children
None of the big players will be happy if the other gets it so will just continue to sue in the hope the winner just gives up and pulls out
Oracle has filed a fresh petition with the Supreme Court of the United States, opening another chapter in its year-long battle with the Pentagon over the award of a $10bn Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) contract to Microsoft. Big Red had been told by the Federal Circuit in September last year that the Department …
No, there's method to their apparent madness. If they can drag it through the courts for enough years and get the contract voided so the government has to start over it gives them the time they needed to catch up to Amazon and have a better chance to win a second time around.

It's the year 2075
1. Infosys buys Microsoft
2. Infosys buys Oracle
3. You have to send a form to your local police station using Royal Infosys Mail (RIM) and hope that jobsworth will stamp the access pad if you want to login to your Windows Orifice.
4. Only way to pay your monthly subscription is to speak to AI for a day to train the datasets. They don't accept money, because all tax loopholes that involve money transfer have been plugged.

However the Oracle global picture database has been rebuilding indexes and objects for the last 15 years after it crashed following an accident when someone uploaded a picture of a dress and the AI couldn't decide what colour it was, which caused overheating and a fire on the server island. So all phones have camera app disabled and people can only record sound like it was 1800.
