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.
