"Ever since Oracle announced the acquisition of Sun Microsystems along with MySQL, all hell broke loose in the open source community.

Even though I have no love for Oracle, I think it is time to let the deal go through at least for the sake of Sun employees who are sitting there with their future unknown. At the same time, I am not unduly worried about the future of MySQL because I have complete confidence in the open source license of MySQL. Let me try to explain my position here in this post.
