I think that's the main "buy" decision point for the majority of MySQL users - free!

could this be the point that made MySql a must have for Sun? They get the same engineering mindset for Linux that they have for Solaris but without impacting Solaris now - hmm

gotta give him credit for realizing that MySql was already good at what it did at the core - so this gives me hope Sun isn't just acquiring brains.

yea, but will Sun be sending sales dudes if they spot companies with cash in the logs?
