Get ready for Oracle round 3.
MySQL AB was founded in 1994.
In 2010 - Oracle buys MySQL... Ney, they bought Sun Microsystems in 1995. in 2008 Sun Microsystems purchased MySQL AB. In 2010 Oracle bought Sun Microsystems.
Hmmmmm. So this will end well based on...
StarOffice / LibraOffice ... Java / Blackdown / OpenJDK...
I don't think going with Oracle will end it well based on dabbling in GPL / Open Source.
But I am old, and don't know about such things. Commercial interests always improve a large GPL project...
You be the judge.
