Oracle buys Sun Microsystems

Oracle has purchased Sun for roughly 9.50 a share, amounting to 7.4 billion dollars.

http://arstechnica.com/open-source/n...pen-source.ars

The future of Solaris and Mysql is questionable at this point. Openoffice.org and the one i'm interested in most to date, btrfs might change too.

But ZFS and dtrace may be ported and they could further improve Mysql and keep Openoffice.org running. I think they'll do better with everything than Sun did. The company had no focus.

Yeah since this forum is using mysql, i think this might be of interest to you.

Mysql has been forked by the creators/core developers.
