Craig,
        I have my doubts about Falcon replacing InnoDb. I don't think it 
will be fast enough to handle a lot of users.

       As to why is Oracle buying InnoDb and BDB? I think it is because 
Larry Ellison is a true humanitarian who would like to share some of his 
wealth with the Open Source community (including MySQL) who have been 
overworked and under funded for years.  <cough> <cough> :)
