Yesterday morning I was reading through Oracle's recently updated price list (yes my Monday mornings really are that exciting).

Well, it was to be expected: after a long wait, WordPress 3.0 got released just when I was on a short holiday. (WordPress admins shouldn't be allowed to take holidays for that exact reason.)
