Oracle site seems to be a tad busy this morning. Here is the link to the announcement on the Sun site http://www.sun.com/third-party/global/oracle/index.jsp

Oracle would have servers, Java, MySQL, Netbeans and several other things. Hell, they might kill off the last two.

I think Java will be in awesome hands of Oracle and Java could be a more strong server side language than what Sun did. Sun wasted a lot of resource, time and money in JavaFX, we already have Flex/Flash.
