Businesses Microsoft Oracle Windows's Benioff Disses Windows 8, Oracle 182

An anonymous reader writes " CEO Marc Benioff is the latest to predict Windows 8 will be a disaster for Microsoft, but for a different reason than some others: he says that Windows is simply irrelevant in the new era of cloud computing and bring-your-own-devices (BYOD), which will become clear to corporate IT decision makers when they confront the upgrade decision. Of course, this conveniently dovetails with Salesforce's market position, so consider the source. Another interesting development is the growing rivalry between Benioff and his old boss Larry Ellison; is a longtime Oracle shop, but they have just announced intentions to hire 40-50 PostgreSQL developers."
