Ellison touts Oracle vs. Microsoft

Published on .

Berkeley, Calif. -- After a new media conference at the University of California at Berkeley, Oracle Corp. Chairman Larry Ellison took the stage in the university's Zellerbach Auditorium for what turned out to be, by all accounts, a brash performance. Mr. Ellison boasted that his networking company could overtake Microsoft Corp. as a force in computing as the Internet becomes more important than personal computers. ``Oracle has the chance to do the unthinkable, to dethrone Microsoft,'' said Mr. Ellison, according to CBS MarketWatch. The Oracle chairman also claimed to have an interest in running for governor of California, according to ZDNet.
