Waiting on Oracle Sunset

The worry over MySQL may hold up Oracle's acquisition of Sun. Sun has so much hardware and software yet it is the potential Oracle ownership of the open source database that could be a problem for competition. I don't know that I disagree but it is interesting that an open source product could be cause for an anti-competitive issue. If the competitors (SAP and Microsoft) really felt this way couldn't they get the bits? It is the chance that Oracle could slack off on future development of MySQL that seems to be the problem. Europe to Review Oracle’s Takeover of Sun
