    Sun To Acquire MySQL

    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.

    http://www.mysql.com/news-and-events...ire-mysql.html
    Most of my questions/posts are fairly straightforward and simple. I post long verbose messages in an attempt to be thorough.

    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,

    best regards

    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.
