t 2 pm EST (-5 GMT), OurSQL will be interviewing Brian Aker, MySQL’s Director of Architecture, about today’s announcement that Sun Microsystems bought MySQL. If you have a burning question (about the purchase), please comment here. If you’d like to be identified, please leave your name and where you’re from in your comment
SUN Microsystems just bought MySQL. I don’t know much about SUN internals, but I’m not sure how the company resolves being the primary developer of 2 differing DBMS’s. Since those are the top 2 open source DBMS’s (and there aren’t really any other ones out there, as I don’t count sqlite as a DBMS), there could be a real conflict of interest.
