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 😉
