H-P (HPQ) scores a victory in its breach of contract suit against Oracle (ORCL). A judge requires Oracle to keep writing databases that support Intel's (INTC) high-end Itanium server CPUs, which H-P is the only real supporter of. Oracle naturally plans to appeal. Barring major damages, the decision could be water under the bridge, since many firms have joined Oracle in ending Itanium support, and H-P is focusing on developing high-end servers based on Intel's Xeon CPUs.
