Not like Oracle's boss Larry Ellison to give his two-penneth.

Ellison thinks by ousting CEO Mark Hurd after the sexual harasment allegations, that HP decided were unfounded, and some falsified expenses claims, HP has made a mistake on the level of "the idiots" on the Apple board that ousted Steve Jobs in 1985.

"The HP board just made the worst personnel decision since the idiots on the Apple board fired Steve Jobs many years ago," he said in a letter to the New York Times.

"In losing Mark Hurd, the HP board failed to act in the best interest of HP's employees, shareholders, customers and partners," Ellison said in the letter.
