And now? Going back to ABAP?

So Oracle buys Sun and gets Solaris, Mysql, MaxDB and Java. The first is a very important database but not very relevant to enterprise and SAP world (although it is used in SAP xMII). The second (previously named SAP DB) is the core to SAP APO LiveCache. And the last, the Java programming language, is the programming environment on which most new SAP products are developed and is also used for the cross platform GUI. And I would guess a lot of customers run on Solaris.

Before this purchase Oracle already had the most used database in SAP deployments. Is it me, or this is too much Oracle on SAP's backyard? If it was in my house, I would start doing some cleaning.
