Red Hat CEO: Choose flexibility or Larry

,----[ Quote ]
| During his keynote presentation at the Red Hat Summit 2009 conference in 
| Chicago, Whitehurst covered Red Hat talking points, including how the company

| other hand, presents the opposite of flexibility, according to Whitehurst.

| approve the Oracle takeover of Sun just yet anyway. Instead they are 
| launching an in depth investigation of the deal, and it's MySQL that seems to  
| be the issue. Here's the press release. This doesn't mean it won't happen, 
| and the deadline for a final result of the investigation is January 19, 2010. 
| But they are certainly asking the right question, namely, what happens to 
| MySQL in Oracle's hands?
