Sun to aquire MySQL

Sun to Acquire MySql

Great! C|Net’s take. Jonathon’s take.

Jeff Nolan has a good take on it from his SAP Ventures days.

I agree that SAP could be doing even more with MaxDB and the scripting world.

How about supporting or sponsoring a PDO driver for MaxDB for one?

But here are some initial questions that come out of my mind:

Doesn’t Oracle hold the licence for the InnoDB storage engine?

The java company owning the database that plays so well with perl / php / python etc. Is that a potential culture clash?

Will there be a move to push solaris as a prefered OS?

But aside from that “Well done” to all at Sun and MySQL. I am looking forward to MySQL moving forward from this announcement.
