After walking away from IBM –  Sun agrees to be acquired but Oracle.  Sure there is a lot to talk about with Oracle entering into the hardware market but for the thousands of sites today running on MySQL, you now have Oracle lurking in the background. In Oracle’s defense – they have been a reasonable promoter of open source – but we should all watch closely to see how an unrelenting and genetically driven desire to dominate the RDBMS market affects their continued support of  the database that the web really runs on.
