Itanium—and thus unknowingly undermining HP’s plan to lock in its customers to Itanium

longer and keep milking support revenues, until it could develop x86 solutions and migration

strategies on its own timetable. The truth also undermined the three-quarters of a billion dollars

HP was secretly paying to Intel to create the illusion of a long Itanium roadmap essential to its

scheme. All that money and the years of carefully managed secrecy meant nothing if Oracle was

going to stop building new products for HP-UX. Certainly that is not Oracle’s problem, as it had

no obligation to continue to do so, and even if HP had obtain such a “commitment” it would

have been obtained by fraud and deception. In all events, nothing justifies HP’s dishonest efforts

to slander Oracle and double-down on its lies about Itanium’s status and future. Itanium is past

its natural end of life. Since 2008 it has been on HP-managed life support, and every appearance

of vitality and relevance has been orchestrated by HP, for the benefit of HP alone, and with utter

disregard for the rights of consumers to make their own informed choices. HP’s world-class

campaign of deception—and its final stage, where HP has attempted to vilify Oracle for telling

the truth—has finally come to light. By this cross-complaint Oracle seeks appropriate redress for

itself and the general public.
