We are using MySQL, help save it [UPDATED]

Well… CE has decided and as everyone suppose they had considered that this is not a monopolistic movement (i doubt that), the terms of Oracle involving MySQL are ridiculous. Time will give us the answer, i hope all keep running fine for MySQL and opensource community.

We’re using MySQL for free, don’t let ORACLE to buy sun and give them the opportunity of “steal” our money with privative licenses:

Support Michael “Monty” Widenius to save it.

Oracle está a punto de comprar Sun, pero antes tiene que pasar por la comisión Europea antimonopolio. Oracle está haciendo toda la presión posible para que la EC (comisión europea) acepte esto, cosa que a cualquier usuario de software libre debería parecerle una aberración, más teniendo en cuenta lo que NO ha prometido Oracle:

  1. Mantener Mysql como proyecto opensource
  2. Participar en la comunidad
  3. Aplicar los parches subministardos por la comunidad de manera activa.
  4. Discriminar los parches que puedan hacer a MySQL mucho más competitiva frente a Oracle
  5. Seguir trabajando en MySQL para ofrecer una alternativa a Oracle.

Como digo esto es lo que Oracle NO ha prometido y que seguramente ignorará ante la “pequeña” amenaza que se supone es MySQL.
En la página de Monty tenéis unas plantillas para enviar a la CE, que deberíais enviar, a ver si evitamos este movimiento monopolista.

  1. i think your main argument with innodb is not as true as you say, cause innodb was moved to a sencond stage as mysql storage system since Oracle bought it.
    i simply prefer that other company buy Sun, as everyone say IBM might be the best due their contributions at opensource world.
