Citações Larry Ellison

„If an open source product gets good enough, we'll simply take it.“

—  Larry Ellison

Financial Times interview (18 April 2006) http://us.ft.com/ftgateway/superpage.ft?news_id=fto041820061306424713.
Contexto: If an open source product gets good enough, we'll simply take it. So the great thing about open source is nobody owns it – a company like Oracle is free to take it for nothing, include it in our products and charge for support, and that's what we'll do. So it is not disruptive at all – you have to find places to add value. Once open source gets good enough, competing with it would be insane. … We don't have to fight open source, we have to exploit open source.

„The computer industry is the only industry that is more fashion-driven than women's fashion.“

Contexto: The computer industry is the only industry that is more fashion-driven than women's fashion. Maybe I'm an idiot, but I have no idea what anyone is talking about. What is it? It's complete gibberish. It's insane. When is this idiocy going to stop?

„Twenty minutes compared to never, that's a lot.“

Contexto: Twenty minutes compared to never, that's a lot. Our customer, the Central Intelligence Agency, would get very upset [if] somebody looks in their database.

„When I started Oracle, what I wanted to do was to create an environment where I would enjoy working.“

—  Larry Ellison

Smithsonian Institution Oral and Visual Histories, Oral History Interview with Lawrence Ellison (24 October 1995) http://americanhistory.si.edu/collections/comphist/le1.html.
Contexto: When I started Oracle, what I wanted to do was to create an environment where I would enjoy working. That was my primary goal. Sure, I wanted to make a living. I certainly never expected to become rich, certainly not this rich. I mean, rich does not even describe this. This is surreal.

„Great achievers are driven, not so much by the pursuit of success, but by the fear of failure.“

—  Larry Ellison
