View as plain text  
I think that letter actually does MySQL a favour as it points out 

'MySQL has been used as a pricing lever by Oracle customers'

That single factor says Oracle should not be allowed to control MySQL as it would enable
Oracle to  more easily raise or maintain high prices! For something to be an effective
'pricing lever' it has to be a viable alternative. MySQL is a very effective pricing
lever on Oracle as it is a mature and proven product with excellent support.

Regards

John
