MySQL ONE Swedish Billion-Dollar Baby

Its good news and its good business, and it al started in Sweden. Now is Sun buying MySQL.

Sun put its money where its mouth is Wednesday, with the announcement that it would buy open source database vendor MySQL for a whopping $1 billion.

I don’t think its good news for the big competitor Oracle, when the open source alternative now gets the big company credibility from Sun. Of course there move the same day: “Oracle announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire BEA Systems.” It’s a move but more of the old business schools move. In my opinion – If your not moving in the SUNlight you have to move in the shadows.
