Sony dumps Oracle in a move to postgresql.....
 
http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1940194,00.asp

".....That was emphatically underscored by the March 20 news that Sony
Online Entertainment is jumping ship, dumping Oracle to move over to
EnterpriseDB and its PostgreSQL-based database....."

So, OSS dbases start to bite Oracle.....a sign of things to come....
