Oh Sun, the only thing you're really good for is vaporous hardware
promises, and internal projects that fail to bloom until you give up and
turn the damned thing over to a community project. Naturally I expect
MySQL to now crash into failure because it's not the result of Sun just
going "Beats me, you fix it. Plus we spent all the money.". That sort of
product evolution is recognizable by the unique smell of smoking Ferrari
tires and a the fading voice of someone saying "Good luck with that
timesink suckers!".

Still, I'm happy to see that MySQL is at least under some sort of positive
auspice. While I lean towards using PostgreSQL myself, one has to
acknowledge that product competition is a very good thing.
