Subject:Re: Sun bought by Oracle
View as plain text  
Quite frankly, if MySQL gets neglected in the future, I'll switch to  
PostgreSQL, as simple as that.
However, the acquisition of Sun does place Oracle in an interesting  
market position - "the enterprise Apple" as mentioned in the ZDNet  
article. Let's see and hope the best.

Cheers,
Michael
