Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Due to me not working for OSNews these past eight weeks, I've been a bit out of the loop, as I didn't really follow technology news. I did notice that a lot is going on in OpenSolaris land, and today, Oracle has outlined what it has planned for Solaris 11 - and according to some, the fears about OpenSolaris' future were justified.

Well, there's a subtle difference here: MySQL is GPL + copyright assignment. If it were GPL-only, no proprietary forks/branches were possible. On the other hand, it would become impossible to use MySQL in software that does not have a GPL-compatible license as well.
