Sun buys MySQL
by Jonah Harris
Several of the announcements can be found below:
|I think Sun's resources are going to make it easier for MySQL to build Falcon, which they need to do if they are to prevent Oracle from killing them.|
|What's even more interesting is that this gets announced the same time as Oracle's purchase of BEA. Don't know if it's related, but...|
|Don't you find it more than interesting that in many fields there tend to remain just corporations that are growing bigger each day? I'd hate to live in a "Johnny Mnemonic"-like world! Hope it's just some passing trend....|
As the artists found in the 20th century, capitalism converts even her enemies into her most loyal of priests. This is why I despise the "Cathedral and the Bazaar," and the apostles of Open Source. Soon Debian will sell, Richard Stallman will die, Craigslist will be seized by Rupert Murdoch under a manufactured scandal of terrorism and pedophilia, The Beat Happening will write the themesong for Lockheed Martin, and Jean Luc Goddard will capture it all as the last silent film. And when he dies, BP/Motorola/Rothschild/Rockefeller/PhillipMorris/EverythingCo will buy its rights, and use its images to sell a line of vacuum cleaners, built by Cambodian slaves, laced with cancerous chemicals.
This is really bad news if Sun buy MySQL.
Mysql is the best open source database on the world. I can't image that what will happen if mysql selled to Sun.
