Databases When Sun announced it would offer certain plugins and features for enterprise customers only, and maybe even make them closed-source, the open source community was up in arms. It seems that MySQL and Sun have listened to the criticism, as these plans are now off the table. In fact, these plans did not originate within Sun in the first place.

Sun already has the same model with openoffice/staroffice, why is it such a big deal so long as the core app remains open source?


From Sun's standpoint, a user's standpoint, a developer's standpoint, or a cheerleader's standpoint? It makes a difference. ;-)

I think the chicken little standpoint is the same as the users standpoint.

"the sky is falling!"

and yes, I am that kind of user.
