Why the EU should block Oracle/Sun

,----[ Quote ]
| Last week, I argued that the European Commission, the European Union's top
| competition authority, was wasting its time delaying Oracle's acquisition of
| Sun. Since then, I've heard from Henrik Ingo, the COO (chief operating
| officer) for Monty Program Ab, the MySQL fork headed by MySQL's founder
| Michael "Monty" Widenius. He has a different take on the EU's opposition to
| the deal, and I thought it worth sharing his viewpoint with you.
| First, Ingo notes that "While it's true that many use MySQL for free [under
| the open-source GPL license), and some even hack on the GPL'd source code,
| most of MySQL's paying customers use MySQL under a commercial license which
| has nothing to do with Open Source. It is in this market that MySQL competes
| against Oracle and for those customers the GPL version of MySQL offers no
| consolation. This is the main reason why the EU is concerned."
