Oracle After Larry Ellison: Co-CEOs Sow Confusion, Discontent - Businessweek

Perhaps just a holding pattern until Marc Benioff can be enticed to return (tangentially, he tweeted, as quoted in SFGate's Larry Ellison's exit as Oracle CEO signals Silicon Valley shift yesterday, "There always has been, & always will be, one ceo at Oracle" -- the full tweet was "There always has been, & always will be, one ceo at Oracle. 'All sw & hw engineering functions will continue to report to @larryellison.'")...

"Larry Ellison loves a good game. Even in stepping down as chief executive officer on Thursday, Oracle’s (ORCL) co-founder has created another opportunity to compete. How else to explain the Faustian pact he’s struck with successors Mark Hurd and Safra Catz? The new CEOs, both of whom were previously presidents, now find themselves in the unenviable position of being forced to share the top job."
