| This week in Silicon Valley, the MySQL Conference and Expo is underway, and 
| there are already questions appearing about whether the speakers will have to

| MySQL isn't the perfect solution for all database problems -- and neither is 
| Oracle.  The reality is that MySQL and Oracle coexist in many organizations.  
| A study done by the IOUG (International Oracle User Group) highlighted this 
| fact when its study (PDF) showed that a third of Oracle shops had MySQL in 
| production, side-by-side with their Oracle databases. And one great benefit 
| of Oracle acquiring Sun is that the InnoDB and MySQL teams will be together 
| in one organization for the first time ever.      



Shuttleworth: Oracle's Sun buy validates open source

,----[ Quote ]
| He argued that the major sources in software today are either free software
| or powered by free software, Google Yahoo etc.
|     "The fact that Oracle has just announced a multi-billion dollar
|     acquisition of a company that describes itself as the world's biggest
|     Free Software and Open Source company to me is enormously instructive,"
|     Shuttleworth said. "To me it suggests that it cements the idea that open
|     source and free software are the big game in town. And everyone is trying
|     to figure out what that means and how they integrate it, what' they can't
|     do is ignore it."
