I know you may have seen the Microsoft acquires Firefox thread (which was pretty fun) but this is on the up and up. Sun is acquiring MySQL.

well, bad enough, that means I must find another rdb instead of mysql.

I personally don't see this as a bad move. Why would you find another rdb if Sun acquired MySQL? There is no reason to.

Let's say is not a decision, is a feeling, and I don't want to talk about reason, we have better things to do with our lifes then making unterminable lists and argue who is right, :)

Ed: Exactly my thought. What about MySQL being Sun owned changes the situation in any way?

- medium company?? vs. huge company management [1]
- passion vs. cost effective [2]
- simple and robust vs. popular and "easy to use" [3]
- make java part of our life, :)
* I allready imagine improved development cycle using java tech. [4]
* why not a better jmsql native engine with a short learning curve [5]
* what about future, jsparql, sparql is allready a sql camel [6]
- ms access vs mysql, now each have a niche, but sun is ms competitor, colateral damage [7]

I'm afraid more of [3], [4] and [6] as far I have no alternative. Last apply more to [4] and [6] for example now I could use odbc with mysql if I want, but I have also the option to not use it.

[3] and [5] is part of my nightmair, taken somebody of the street and make it a big programmer in less then 4 hours, :)
Knowledge? ... what? ...learning? I allready do that few minutes ago.

[1], [2] and [7] could affect me.

As I say, could be more or less feeling, :)

I'm not exactly getting your point, but I don't see anything wrong with Sun taking over MySQL. MySQL, in my opinion, lags behind Oracle so much that it doesn't even seem worth it to use MySQL in a corporate setting. So why not let a corporation such as Sun take it over and actually make it better?

As the article reads, Sun is the largest corporate contributor to open source projects. I don't see anything wrong with this.

Just my 2 cents.
