Oracle to buy Sun




MySQL創業者のMichael Wideniusが今回の買収についてこう書いています。

I don't think that anyone can own an open source project; the projects are defined by the de-facto project leaders and the developers that are working on the project. If the company loses the trust of these people, they can go away and fork the project and turn it the way they want to.
