Oracle sheds light on its Sun plans

,----[ Quote ]
| MySQL was tackled early in the 
| presentation. Oracleâs chief corporate 
| architect, Edward Screven, said the company 
| would integrate MySQL into Oracleâs 
| software stack because many of Oracleâs 
| large customers use both databases. âI 
| think Oracle will do a better job of 
| developing MySQL than has been the case 
| over the past five years,â he added.

LCA: How to destroy your community

,----[ Quote ]
| Josh Berkus is well known as a PostgreSQL 
| hacker, but, as it happens, he also picked 
| up some valuable experience during his 
| stint at "The Laboratory for the 
| Destruction of Communities," otherwise 
| known as Sun Microsystems. That experience 
| has been distilled into a "patented ten-
| step method" on how to free a project of 
| unwelcome community involvement. Josh's 
| energetic linux.conf.au presentation on 
| this topic was the first talk in the 
| "business of open source" miniconf; it was 
| well received by an enthusiastic crowd.

| How will this affect EnterpriseDB in

| simply further supports the fact that 
| PostgreSQL is the only real choice for 
| organizations looking to deploy an open-
| source database that is backed by a truly 
| independent community," Alston said.



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

| company, and PostgreSQL co-founder Bruce
| Momjian today issued the following
| statements regarding the EU committee's

| 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.
