What's there to save? Monty sold all rights to MySQL, and should just crawl under a rock and leave the rest of the world alone. :)

If he doesn't like what Oracle/Sun do with MySQL in the future, then he can just fork it and carry on. Oh, wait, he's already done that. Yeah, he needs to just shut up and get out of the way. :D

I don't remember why, but I've always leaned towards MySQL as a db. Maybe it was the dolphin ..


I was slightly turned off when MySQL switched to using ENGINE=MyISAM and broke a bunch of stuff. But I really made up mind to make a full switch to PostgreSQL after reading this thread:

Petitions will not help them so why to bother signing them ? From my point of view, it'll not happen anyway.
