No, that would be funny. Microsoft buying Oracle - the new world
software company name would be "Miracle" then! :-D

Of course, Oracle will have bought IBM for their DB2 system and Java
affinity before, and Microsoft will as well have bought Adobe for their
PDF and Flash technologies.

Then, MySQL is going to be abandoned by Miracle (they still have MSSQL,
which may be a re-labelled DB2 with full PL/SQL compatibility then...)
and a new small company is taking over the Open Source MySQL development...

At least my crystal ball home oracle says so. But maybe I should clean
it again to see things more accurately. ;-)
