Oracle slams PeopleSoft by comparing it to...

At the DoJ trial against Oracle, the government introduced into evidence an Oracle sales training presentation on how to compete against PeopleSoft...
"PeopleSoft has no magical product, they have bugs, product deficiencies, demo disasters, resource and morale issues, account losses, and horror stories in the press to deal with," the presentation said. "Just like we do."
That's from a San Jose Mercury News article on the trial, which has been also revealing how deeply the major software vendors will discount a deal when they really want the win.

A Wall Street Journal article (subscription required) has a lot more about the cutthroat tactics that have been revealed so far in the trial
