It took them so long to realize that they need WebDAV support?
I looked into it earlier this year (they had some preliminary stuff out in
February or March) and dismissed it because they did their own proprietary stuff.

How they can compare a protocol with an OS is beyond me. Windows provides
several "avenues for traffic across the Internet", and WebDAV (of course, MS had
to come up with their own name of WebFolders) is one of them.
But I am not surprised. Oracle, or rather Larry E. views everything with an eye
towards fighting against MS.
