PSOUG / European Commission approves Oracle's buyout of Sun Microsystems

European approval for Oracle takeover of Sun Microsystems

LONDON (MarketWatch) -- The European Commission on Thursday approved Oracle Corp.'s acquisition of Sun Microsystems after regulators were assuaged over the fate of an open-source database.

The deal removes the last major impediment facing Oracle and its planned takoever of Sun  though China and Russia still need to give their assent as well. U.S. regulators approved the deal months ago.

Oracle said it expects to close the transaction shortly and has scheduled a conference call for next week on its strategy for Sun.

The E.C. had been concerned over MySQL, which Sun bought in 2008. After Oracle agreed to maintain MySQL, the antitrust authorities gave their assent to the deal.

PSOUG / Why Oracle Can't Easily Kill PostgreSQL

Why Oracle Can't Easily Kill PostgreSQL

Claiming that 'PostgreSQL is a FOSS alternative to MySQL and hence Oracle should be allowed to pursue MySQL' is a specious argument, according to Monty Widenius. He fears that Oracle, or someone else, can easily squash PostgreSQL by just 'buying out' the top 20 developers. The Postgre community has fired back, calling that claim ridiculous. According to the article, 'PostgreSQL as a project is pretty healthy, and shows how vulnerable projects like MySQL are to the winds of change.

PostgreSQL could die tomorrow, if a huge group of its contributors dropped out for one reason or another and the remainder of the community didn't take up the slack. But that's exceedingly unlikely. The existing model for PostgreSQL development ensures that no single entity can control it, it can't be purchased, and if someone decides to fork the project, the odds are that the remaining community would be strong enough to continue without a serious glitch.'"
