Fallout from the Sun and Oracle deal is still the top stories around the web. Below are some factual and some speculation about how things will shake out for Microsoft, SQL and even the Open Source Movement itself.
To start take a look at the Win Super Site’s look on how this puts the new company on even footing, or even higher ground, with Microsoft.
Open Office: The Open Office project was already running into Mission Creep and Development Woes. But the new deal may end up having an even more direct consequence on matters.
My SQL: and then there is this bit of news where SQL may see a fork in the development tree. That would mean that My SQL would compete technically against another version of the program on a commercial and open model level. Confused? Me too.
