I found the quote from Scott McNealy most ironic:
"If you want to save...money, make the default database MySQL. It's
free, it's bundled [with Sun's Solaris software], you've got the whole
open-source community working on making it better. If Yahoo and Google
can run their entire operations on MySQL, then certainly there's a
huge chunk of your operations that could run on it as well."
There lies a good question...
How many "open source" developers are _actually_ working on MySQL?
If Scott McNealy is right, then who are those scads of people
committing code to the tree? :-)
