Oracle and SUN Engadget got the chance to sit down with Jonathan Schwartz, the pony-tailed CEO of Sun Microsystems. Being the gadget blog that they are, Engadget asked Schwartz about the long-missing JavaFX Mobile platform Sun has promised, Java on the iPhone, and competing with Microsoft as an open source vendor.

That story serious misrepresents what Sun is actually doing. MySQL was proposing to release ADDITIONAL optional components that would probably be closed source. Sun would potential go back on this plan and make them open source anyways. Someone got a whiff of the issue and blew it out of proportion and basically turned it on its head. Sun is NOT planning to close source MySQL, they are not turning their backs on open source.
