Sun acquires MySQL January 17, 2008Posted by Matsu in Information Technology, Open Source, Technology.
This could be very interesting and possibly not all good. It reminds me a lot of Novell’s acquisition of Suse (and Suse Linux). That didn’t turn out too badly, but it did cause me to wonder what would happen to the many open source applications and Linux distribution made by Suse. So far, I don’t think Novell’s acquisition of Suse has negatively impacted the open source projects. Maybe that will also be true for Sun’s acquisition of MySQL.
To learn more, you can watch this video where the head of both companies talk about their plans and what it might mean for MySQL users.
