Oracle Buys Sun - The future or MySQL

With the news that Oracle is to buy Sun, I can't help but wonder what will happen to MySQL. Maybe it won't mean anything. Any thoughts?

Using Blaze DS in Commercial Applications

A couple of days ago (Apr. 15, 2009) a post popped up on my blog reader titled "Using BlazeDS in Commercial products" which immediately caught my interest. I just assumed that you could use it in commercial products but I have never actually looked into the license. Basically the post indicated that you can't use BlazeDS in commercial products without buying an OEM license from Adobe but you can use it for internal applications. Of course I immediately commented and said that given that, why wouldn't I just always use GraniteDS. I went back a few hours later and found that the blog post was not even there anymore, let alone my comment.

So my question has yet to be answered... If I can't use the opensource BlazeDS for anything but internal applications, why would I spend any effort in every getting familiar with it?
