Sun Micro to buy MySQL

Sun Micro has announced that it will buy MySQL AB for $1 billion.

Wow.  Who says Open Source doesn’t make money?

I can see several ways that this could be good for the open source community.  Sun has a track record of supporting open-source projects, so I don’t foresee MySQL becoming closed because of this.  Now that it’s from Sun, you will probably start to see it more in the corporate world in places that are leery of open source projects.
