Oracle Buys SUN; MySQL is Forked

Oracle Buys SUN; MySQL is Forked | Bryan Richard | Monday, April 20th, 2009 | "With the announcement of Oracle’s intent to acquire Sun Microsystems (and with it MySQL) for $7.4B coming at roughly the same time that the 2009 MySQL Conference & Expo was just spinning up, it didn’t take long for individuals to begin airing their thoughts..."

While most of the focus of this buyout is on MySQL, the loss of Sun as a company and Solaris as a product will just mean the OS world is getting smaller and smaller. Solaris and MySQL might survive in their Open Source versions but I don't trust Oracle.
