"The co-founder of MySQL has submitted an appeal against the
European competition watchdog's decision to clear Oracle's takeover
of Sun Microsystems earlier this year.
"Michael 'Monty' Widenius, who sold his chunk of the MySQL
database to Sun Microsystems in 2008 for $1bn, told various news
outlets including The Register on Friday that he would make a full
statement about the appeal once Oracle had responded to it.
"We asked the Larry Ellison-run software giant if it could
provide us with comment. However, the company is yet to officially
respond to Monty's latest grumbles."
