Liberate - Oracle wanted to compete with the personal computer by using network computers. Unfortunately for the network computer scenario, PCs kept coming down in price, and in a spectacular manner. Oracle gave up and oriented its network computer technology primarily to set top box use, calling the corporation Liberate Technologies. It focused its business on set-top box software for interactive television. Liberate technologies was a major interactive TV player. Liberate's North American assets were sold to Double C Technologies, a Joint Venture of Comcast and Cox.
