Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL) CEO Larry Ellison made no mention of the interminable regulatory process that has stretched on for five months and hung up its plans to have its purchase of Sun officially sealed. Ellison also said nothing about his former Exadata hardware partner HP. HP (NYSE: HPQ) had no comment on being jilted by Oracle.
