Myself I am in charge of a 7 man team dealing in datacentre ops. Had it not been for my polyvalent skills across networks, servers and apps, those specialised personnel would have have been in catfights up to the early hours of the morning trying to sort out problems. Its a bit like being a general in an army.. you might not know how to drive a tank, but you do know it can blow down a building.
We use some other Oracle products which have been acquired by the giant... We usually find ourselves sorting out production support issues days or weeks before Oracle support get back to us with their useless mumbo-jumbo. Oracle is starting to look like some kind of monger willing to sell just about anything. For those contemplating Oracle support, don't... Stick to the REAL support from Redhat.
I wonder how realistic those figures are... It would not be in Google's favour to state whether paid subscriptions have been affected and if I was a paying gmail customer, I would keep my mouth shut and never disclose to my clients that I have lost their "confidential" mail.
Suckers root their kit in order to play games for cheap. My point is if suckers can't bother to pay for an original game then they don't deserve to play. I bet that quite a few game coders out there who look after their family with their hard earned cash will agree. Well done for the law.
The main problem is that for some strange reason I.T is commonly perceived as a "cost" by the I.T. illiterate financial folks. What they don't get is that everything used in a business has a cost. The only time they WILL realise the importance of I.T. spending is when you take away their tables, chairs, laptops and leave them with an abacus.
