MySQL is Now Owned by Sun

So, Sun bought MySQL. And for a jagillion dollars.

I prefer MySQL to the alternatives, and this move means management has improved.

However, I prefer distribution--not centralization--of Open Source projects. Google is great, as is Wikipedia. I use both of them daily and extensively. But is it positive in the long-term that so many of my resources come from those two places?

The green in me says "hell no."

Open Source is gaining power in the business world. ...And you know what power does.
