Postgres Community Responds to EU Decision to Approve Oracle's Acquisition of MySQL

,----[ Quote ]
| EnterpriseDB, the enterprise Postgres 
| company, and PostgreSQL co-founder Bruce 
| Momjian today issued the following 
| statements regarding the EU committee's 
| decision to approve Oracle's acquisition of 
| Sun, which includes ownership of the MySQL 
| open source database project.


Why PostgreSQL is a better enterprise database than MySQL

,----[ Quote ]
| There are many more features that make PostgreSQL 
| well-suited to the enterprise. Security is huge, but 
| PostgreSQLâs support and focus on data integrity, granular 
| access controls, ACID compliance, and other core focuses,
| really explain why PostgreSQL is so highly favoured amongst 
| many database administrators.


Sun and the Ten Ways 

,----[ Quote ]
| If you see a company which "owns" an OSS 
| project, you can be 95% certain that they 
| are pursuing at least one of the Ten Ways, 
| and most often several. One audience member 
| claimed to be "ten for ten". Where 
| companies are generally not screwing up, 
| it's usually because they've hired a 
| battle-tested community adivsor or manager 
| to steer them away from the obvious 
| mistakes. 


Your Opinion Please: Did Oracle Make Concessions to the EU?

,----[ Quote ]
| Back when the EU started the investigation 
| of the Oracle-Sun deal, I made a bet. The 
| bet hinged on whether Oracle would make 
| concessions to get the EUâs approval. 
| Please review the arguments, pro and con, 
| and help us settle the bet.


Sun CEO: Go Oracle, Beat IBM [Internal Memo]

,----[ Quote ]
| Oracle (ORCL) said this morning that it has 
| received unconditional regulatory approval 
| from the European Commission for its 
| acquisition of Sun (JAVA). Below, the all-
| hands memo Sun CEO Jon Schwartz sent to 
| employees following the announcement.

Oracle Sun Merger Wins EU Approval

,----[ Quote ]
| Oracle moved closer to sealing its $7.4
| billion acquisition of Sun Microsystems
| Thursday, as the European Union's antitrust
| body formally signed off on the deal
| following a three-month investigation into
| its impact on competition in the IT sector.
| "I am now satisfied that competition and
| innovation will be preserved on all the
| markets concerned," said EU competition
| commissioner Neelie Kroes, in a statement.
| "Oracle's acquisition of Sun has the
| potential to revitalize important assets
| and create new and innovative products,"
| said Kroes.
