Sun and MySQL

Wednesday, 2008-January-16 at 07:07

I just saw the news over on Jonathan Schwartz's blog: Sun is buying MySQL!  I’ll save all comment for later, save this: this is exciting news, because Sun is at least semi-friendly to FLOSS, while Oracle (who has been attempting to target MySQL and Red Hat, perhaps to drive out lower-cost competitors to its products) is less so. The two together will be a stronger competitor.  I do hope that they will now begin to throw some muscle behind the MaxDB product.
