PeopleSoft rallies dog lovers against Oracle. There's a good article on Bloomberg today, contrasting the personal style of Oracle's CEO Larry Ellison with that of PeopleSoft's founder Dave Duffield and its CEO, Craig Conway. The best quote is at the end, where Conway comments on Oracle's stated intention to stop development on PeopleSoft's products if Oracle succeeds in its hostile takeover of PeopleSoft. He says, "It's like me asking if I could buy your dog so I can go out back and shoot it.''
