Oracle and SUN

There's a rumour going around that Oracle is close to ending all development of Solaris, effectively killing the operating system.

Solaris being canned, at least 50% of teams to be RIF'd in short term. All hands meetings being cancelled on orders from legal to prevent news from spreading. Hardware teams being told to cease development. There will be no Solaris 12, final release will be 11.4. Orders coming straight from Larry.

It's just rumours for now, but they've been gaining steam over the past few days.

MySQL was and is no serious contender to Oracle.

PostgreSQL, on the other hand, is almost close to being a real contender to Oracle with several years of solid multiple master support.

The MySQL "multiple master" support is a paper tiger.

On a related note, MongoDB doesn't even *do* multiple master. It's a toilet paper tiger. But don't tell the fan boys that their beloved NoSQL has any flaws.
