Thoughts on Sun’s billion dollar MySQL

I bet Microsoft is pretty much scared with this big news. 2008 will be a very interesting year to watch as Sun become more and more competitive than ever before. The combination of Sun, Linux and the OpenSource community will become main stream as they compete with Microsoft and other vendors. Choices from servers, operating system, systems development and web are very much laid right before our eyes.

With Sun's investment on MySQL the future is bright to those who aspire in choosing alternatives to license software.

Sun is still very much committed in providing support and innovation to other database such as Prostgre, Oracle, DB2 and Microsoft SQL Server.

Now for technical people who seek for alternatives that will provide the most low cost tools for their server and development has just gets better. Sun has now become the center for providing solution. Sun has been selling servers for years now and the combination of their server, Solaris, MySQL and NetBeans will be a stronger competitor in the coming years.

Truly, Sun understands the drive of technical innovation of being free.
