Sun Going to Acquire MySQL for USD 1 Billion


I guess you all have heard the news now. Sun Microsystem is going to acquire MySQL AB, the company behind the most popular open source database server, MySQL anytime soon.

After this acquisition, Sun would control the Java platform, JavaME embedded programming platform, SunOS/Solaris operating system, workstations, StarOffice suite, and now MySQL.

Seems appropriate to say “Everything under the Sun” now.
