"big pictures", in which themes of "Net Gen", next gen, and 21st Century 
challenges persisted.

Roy and Kevin will report on their attendance at Oracle OpenWorld last 
week, including what's new for Oracle Enterprise Apps, PeopleTools-based 
apps, the Unbreakable Linux announcement, and some hints at what's coming
