Oracle and SUN We've been debating the merits of a possible IBM-Sun deal for a while now, and even Sun itself seemed to be in the dark as to if it would be a good idea to be bought by IBM. These debates are now all moot: in a surprise move (at least, I didn't see any speculation about it) Oracle has bought Sun Microsystems, at USD 9.50 a share, which equates to a total of 7.4 billion USD. The news got out through a press release.

I find this better than the IBM deal; Solaris and Sun have a good relationship anyway. On the other hand I'm wondering what will happen to MySQL. Forked away or killed?(unlikely)
