Holy shit! Didn’t see this one coming (especially since Solaris 10 comes with PostgreSQL, not MySQL).
I think this is good news – Sun has been doing a lot of open, progressive work (OpenOffice & OpenSolaris) and I think MySQL (and its users) will benefit from the acquisition.
But the biggest news of the day is… we’re putting a billion dollars behind the M in LAMP. If you’re an industry insider, you’ll know what that means – we’re acquiring MySQL AB, the company behind MySQL, the world’s most popular open source database.
