Oracle agrees to buy Sun

See Oracle Agrees to Acquire Sun Microsystems (NY Times, 20 April 2009).¬†Wellwell, that’s quite interesting, isn’t it… as to what it means for MySQL, ZFS, OpenSolaris, OpenOffice.org, VirtualBox, Java, and numerous other tidbits, that remains to be seen.

It must be a buzzy kind of day at the MySQL Users Conference 2009, with this news coming in just before the opening… and it’s only been a year since Sun bought MySQL and Jonathan Schwartz did a key note at the conference. I’m sure we’ll hear a lot more from a lot of people, not necessarily content but definitely conjecture and pre-emptive opinions ;-)
