Fantastic News for MySQL and Sun

A lot is being said about Sun's acquisition of MySQL. I think it is great news. Congratulations to the MySQL folks.

I have a lot of respect for Sun from using their systems for many years. In recent years they have moved in a good direction with respect to open source. Having MySQL under their umbrella is excellent news for them. For MySQL, being tied to Sun seems like a great place to move.

Will be very interesting to see where this goes over the next few years and how MySQL benefits from being part of Sun.
