So Larry and the boys over at Oracle have decided to attack the Free Software community via a patent suit against Google and Android, huh? Anybody in the Free Software world have any patents they think Oracle might be treading on? I'm lookin' at you Red Hat. Seriously though, why don't we as a community go after these guys, show them that even if they win we can make sure they lose. I'm not just talking about patent suits either, if you're in the market for a data base try Postgre SQL or if you need something a little more robust even if it's proprietary DB 2 is from IBM who have always played nice with FLOSS. I'm calling for a boycott of Oracle products until they drop the suit, free the JAVA and start acting like the good open source citizens they promised to be when they bought SUN.
