The World is shaking

Oracle Buys Sun. Tom asked What this will mean for MySQL?. I can make a wager this is going to happen:

  • MySQL will be laid to rest (R.I.P.)

  • Oracle will continue (harder?) promoting Oracle Express as the leading free-of-charge database solution for Web shops and similar.

  • PostgreSQL stays where it is on position of the best Open Source Database Management System in the World.

Anybody is going to predict what will happen to Java?
