Sun Buys MySQL

There is a lot of coverage about Sun's billion dollar purchase of MySQL.

I am hoping that Sun is able to restore its empire. They made some serious mistakes in the past, and took a hard fall for it. But maybe they really do want to become a serious company for the Data Center. MySQL is not a perfect DBMS, but it is a very solid product. Sure, there are some design... choices... that are outside of the conventional DBMS, but it also has some great features. I hope that Sun makes good on this purchase and that it ultimately benefits MySQL and the MySQL community.
