Oracle and SUN "Sun announced that at a special meeting of stockholders held on July 16, 2009, its stockholders adopted the merger agreement entered into with Oracle Corporation, under which Oracle will acquire Sun common stock for $9.50 per share in cash. Approximately 62% of the shares of Sun common stock outstanding as of the record date for the meeting voted to adopt the agreement." Well, it seems I won't have to take down our fancy Oracle icon which I put up when the news first got out.

Please ... you're not referring to MySQL as a competitor to Oracle, are you?

Oracle's competitors are the likes of Microsoft (SQL Server), IBM (DB2), SAP at a push. MySQL, for all its ubiquity on the web, is a toy compared to that lot.
