It is a better option than microsoft to avoid the concentration of digital services in the hand of the same companies as ever. Only an idiot would be against it.

Oracle is for decades, and now Facebook, ...are the two tech giants interested more into making money than making things, it's no surprise that Trump favors them.

"Chairman and co-founder of Oracle is Larry Ellison who is a supporter of the Trump Administration and even held a fundraising event for him earlier this year."

No wonder why he got the approval.

Abusing all the free resource without adhere any of the GPL/Apache license going as far as to hide their solution as being part of the open source foundation in their marketing presentation... Classy.

Open source not because they care, its because they have no other solution, instead of only open source the instruction set and hopefully it will get attention in Linux or BSD which Ali already has it own hands on.

I really hope Microsoft buys it so that it gets destroyed

Than we can agree to disagree. ๐Ÿ‘

Berserker, 19 Aug 2020Just joking bro๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘ I don't understand man. I said something that was 100% correct. Nothing else. They won't destroy it. It's perfect as it is and it will stay exactly like this for another year at least. After that they will do their best not do destroy it since it's a profitable thing

US has made china realise that they must be self sufficient, so far China us the biggest buyer of electronics chips from outside their country, This could change with MADE IN CHINA 2030 and MADE IN CHINA 2035 long term plans.

And their own SMIC fabrication, which is now only at 14nm, which is great considering SMIC never had a fabrication better than 45nm process 3 years ago.

They have relied too much in ARM for SoCS and Windows for PCs,also Intel X86 for PCs. time to develop own Fabrication,OS, SoCs, App stores etc.,

Dometalican, 19 Aug 2020What the actual freak? ORACLE!? That's so...random.They recognize the profitability of tiktok. Lol but I think they'll run it into the ground if they manage to acquire their IP

Actually getting tiktok it to the wrong hands is not a bad thing.
I hope it gets ruined so we finally can be spared from watching the kids acting like clowns for an hour in public.

Well, CCP took down ARM China division first, and you can see the recent mess due to it. That division company has gone full rogue. And ARM is probably one of the most important tech companies strategically. Tiktok US is a joke compared to that.

Trump's stance on China is the single best thing He's ever done. I hope the next government (probably Biden) would do the same.

so, everything must belong to americans. and yet, they are talking about the freedom of speech, democracy, privacy. and in china this terrible government...
