Oracle's free offerings win awards at Linuxworld

Best Open Source Solution
• Xchange Server 5 - Open
• Project.Net Inc. - Project.Net
• SugarForge.org - Sugar Open Source
Sleepycat Software - Berkley DB 4.4 (also has a commercial version)

Best Database Solution
• Centeric CRM - Centeric CRM
Oracle - Oracle Database 10g Express Edition

Both products are available under no-cost licenses; Sleepycat is open-source.

I understand SAP's booth presence at LinuxWorld was pretty minimal; one person who at times wasn't even an SAP employee. Oracle evidently had several people at their booth (many of whom were attractive young ladies). Small thing maybe, but what message does it send about Open Source emphasis?
