| Noting competitive pressures from open source, Oracle's Ted Farrell,
| chief architect and vice president of tools and middleware, said if
| Oracle is to compete with a free, open source solution, then "we
| have to do it better."
| Listing open source "myths," Farrell disputed the notion that the
| main attraction of open source is it is free. Many companies would
| pay for their open source software if they had to, he said.
