Sunset


After what seemed like ages, the EC has given the green light to the take over of Sun by Oracle.
I have been working on Sun almost from the start of my working life, so this is a bit of a sad moment.
The delay was caused by opposition by former MySQL owners, and hurt Sun badly.
These guys first cashed in when they sold their product and now wanted to have their word to say on what happens with it. I entirely agree with old JBoss badmouth Marc Fleury on this.
