Sun buys MySQL

by Mark on January 16, 2008

Simon says,"Sun’s buying MySQL for just shy of $1 billion." I guess all bets are off on theMySQL IPO. That gives Sun the full stack OS to apps now and puts them on par with Oracle at least for telling that story. That leads me to speculate with Oracle telling the same story, "Does Red Hat try the same thing by snapping up PostgresSQL vendor EnterpriseDB to give themselves the RHEL, JBoss, and database full monty?"

Big news for enterprise open source, another successful open source software exit.
