I was shocked to find out Sun Microsystems bought MySQL. I know Sun has taken some steps to make it's software open, but are they looking to replace MySQL with another solution? What are some of the ramifications for BOINC?

Gosh I sure hope not. I love the way MySQL is right now and I do think it could have some negative ramifications for BOINC depending on the direction Sun goes with it.
