The destiny of MySQL?

April 21, 2009

Slashdot underlines there are too much forks of MySQL on the way.

After leaving MySQL, Michael “Monty” Widenius started its own code fork, backed up with a company.

The nerds think the destiny of MySQL is unclear, but it is still too early to get a clear vision.

After acquisition of Sun by Oracle, it is difficult to see a future for MySQL.
Oracle has already a “non-commercial” developer-based license of Oracle, and there will be little interest in maintaining a competitor. The two forks above was an early signs of “brains escape” from MySQL.

Anyway, we will go forward to see what will happen.
