Finally Finished Softwar

I finally finished the Oracle/Larry Ellison book Softwar the other day. I liked it more than I expected to. It was less sychophantic than I had originally feared. While the author is clearly sympathetic to Ellison, he does have some fairly balanced critiques of various decisions made by Ellison and Oracle throughout the book.

And it turns out that Ellison is not really a co-author of the book. Rather he provides a running commentary in the footnotes which is a pretty interesting presentation.
