Popular phpMyAdmin is on a roll

,----[ Quote ]
| If any open source application needs no 
| introduction, itâs probably phpMyAdmin, the 
| popular web interface to MySQL databases. 
| MySQL is itself the most popular database 
| system for web applications, and phpMyAdmin 
| makes it easy to administer. phpMyAdmin 
| lets database designers connect to MySQL 
| servers, see all databases and tables they 
| have permission to see, and perform actions 
| on them, including creating and modifying 
| table structure, inserting and updating 
| data, import and export, and synchronizing 
| data between servers.


Oracle Makes Lustre Users Buy Hardware for Support

,----[ Quote ]
| Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL) will soon make it 
| tougher to get paid support for its open 
| source Lustre clustered file system.
| According to a recent presentation by Peter 
| Bojanic, director of Oracle's Lustre Group, 
| Lustre 1.8 and 2.0, which was just released 
| as a beta, will remain open source and 
| licensed under GPL 2.0. But beginning with 
| the full release of Lustre 2.0, paid 
| support will be limited to those purchasing 
| Lustre bundled with Oracle hardware, and 
| the company won't provide an upgrade path 
| for 1.8 users who desire support. That 
| means that Lustre 2.0 users who want paid 
| support will need to replace their 
| hardware.


Understanding Oracle's ODF Plug-in Pricing: What it Means for OpenOffice.org

,----[ Quote ]
| What's still troubling is that very little 
| is coming out of Oracle in terms of what 
| its plans are for OpenOffice.org itself. 
| Updegrove's primary concern is ODF, but I'm 
| more interested in its primary working 
| implementation. Dealing with Sun as the 
| primary mover behind OO.org had its pros 
| and cons, but at least you could get some 
| kind of answers out of the company. Oracle 
| is, so far, doling out very little 
| information. I've tried to get comments out 
| of a few former Sun folks at Oracle and 
| very little is forthcoming. That doesn't 
| seem to bode particularly well for 
| OpenOffice.org.
