's biggest technology losers of the year

Who are the biggest losers of the year? tells all. has listed its top-10 (or bottom-10, if you wish) technology letdowns of the year. Interestingly, enterprise software only has one entrant on the list, and its Oracle's still missing-in-action Fusion:

Still MIA after its 2005 announcement, Oracle's Fusion this year got a new boss (Thomas Kurian) and a new release date (late 2008). While Larry Ellison's company has been tight-lipped with specifics, the rest of the world waits to see how Fusion magically stitches together J.D. Edwards, PeopleSoft, Siebel and the dozens of other software applications it has acquired over the years.

In Oracle's defense, it has taken on a huge integration burden, one that was never going to be easy to pull off. That's why there's a massive EAI market. But perhaps Ellison should be a bit quieter about Fusion until it's actually ready to ship.
