  1. Even though Oracle and Sun are both U.S. based companies, they operate globally - and have had to keep that in mind during their recent proposal to migrate themselves. As the buyout of Sun draws closer, Oracle has faced some scrutiny from the EC, who could cause delays in getting deal finalized. The European Commission hasn't officially acted yet, but rumors are surfacing that they may end up delaying the merger due to concerns regarding the future of the database market.

    I'm also concerned with what will happen to MySQL too. Will the turn it back into an opensource project? Will the obsorb it into Oracle and will access to it become difficult becasue of price?
    It is an important player in the ecosystem of databases servers. I hope for the best.

    I'm going to laugh when Europe turns to crap because no one will do business with a commission that shoves their nose up any *** in sight for 9 months before allowing anything to happen.
