A few other useful articles to read are:

Talking about the OSS development model impacts:
http://jcole.us/blog/archives/2008/04/14/just-announced-mysql-to-launch-new-features-only-in-mysql-enterprise/

Direct from Sun/MySQL, with some better details -- they're essentially
not releasing source to plugins:
http://www.theopenforce.com/2008/04/two-markets-in.html

Matt Asay and his thoughts:
http://www.cnet.com/8301-13505_1-9921505-16.html

451 group talking about the business model (and that not much changed
about MySQL with this announcement):
http://blogs.the451group.com/opensource/2008/04/17/mysqls-business-model-in-a-state-of-flux/


Slashdot may seem over-zealous, but there's a lot of good, balanced
coverage out there.
