MC2 Post 761 Oracle Signals An End to OpenSolaris

I Guess Some Companies Find It
Too Difficult to be Really OPEN.

End to OpenSolaris

99 to 26 Characters



On January 27, 2010, Sun was acquired by  
Oracle Corporation for US$7.4 billion, based on an 
agreement signed on April 20, 2009.

Ever since Sun Microsystems sold out to Oracle, it 
seemed just a matter of time before OpenSolaris
would be mothballed. 

If Functionality doesn't 
add to the bottom-line, who needs it?
For bean counters, the math was pretty simple.

The Question is:
What About MySQL?

It was the Main Part of the dubious deal 
done to quash the incredible success of 
the Free Portion of MySQL Database.
If you can't out perform a
Free Database System, and you have the Cash

Buy It.

How long before it too is shoved into the
Don't Need It, Don't Want It Closet?
Stay Tuned.


MySQL Links and DooDads


Not Waiting For The Dust to Clear, 
Oracle Drops Second Shoe 
on It's Stewardship of 
Sun's Java

Oracle's Java Lawsuit 


its Open Source Credibility


128 to 26 Characters of Dubious Value.
