Sun 買下 MySQL

今早看到的新聞,還蠻震撼的,Sun 買下 MySQL。此舉讓 Sun 成為 Open Source 廠商中數一數二的領導地位。BTW,nobody knows it will be good or bad.

SANTA CLARA, CA January 16, 2008 Sun Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ: JAVA) today announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire MySQL AB, an open source icon and developer of one of the world's fastest growing open source databases for approximately $1 billion in total consideration. The acquisition accelerates Sun's position in enterprise IT to now include the $15 billion database market. Today's announcement reaffirms Sun's position as the leading provider of platforms for the Web economy and its role as the largest commercial open source contributor.
