Sun Buys MySQL

Wed 16 January 2008

My initial reaction to this is fear that Sun will try to force things a little too hard. When I think of MySQL, I think of ease-of-use and reliability. When I think of SQL Server and Oracle, I think of the ancillary tools and the fierceness with which DBAs cling to their specialized knowledge. DBAs don't have the programmers predilection to throw aside their tools for The Next Big Thing.
