Oracle buys Sun! Owns Java, Solaris, MySQL

Oracle buys Sun! Owns Java, Solaris and MySQL Hopefully they'll kill MySQL for ever and dump Red Hat. Solaris use to be the primary development platform, and hjopefully it will be again. I'd love to see the back of the the Linus Torvalds kernel, and the crappy GNU software that gets bundled with it. Am I hoping for too much? Probably.

MySQL should be killed completely. If you want a free database, use PostgreSQL - it is WAY better.
