Oracle Buys Sun

I finally managed to crawl out of bed this morning (after pulling a muscle in my back this weekend while putting in the vegetable garden) to find out about the Sun acquisition by Oracle.

I don’t have any strong feelings about this one way or the other, but I think in the long run it can only help Java. OpenNMS is written in Java, so we’re kind of vested in its future.

While I thought Sun paid too much for MySQL, I think Oracle got this one right. The best analysis I’ve seen so far is from Larry Augustin, so if you’re interested in such things be sure to check it out.

UPDATE: Monty weighs in.
