Article Excerpt:
Sun is buying MySQL for $1 billion. The MySQL team has worked long and hard so I don't begrudge them their pay day. Strike while the iron is offering a lot of cash I say. And I have nothing against Sun. Yet I can't help but think this changes the mental calculation of what database to use. When Oracle acquired Innobase a new independent storage engine was needed for MySQL. How is this different? Does this change your thinking any? Would Martha say it's a good thing? Like Luke I've searched my feelings, but the force is not with me and I don't really know how I feel about it.
