Why, in my day we DoS'd by clicking on slashdot links, and by golly, we liked it!
Peel the layers off the orange. Sun owns MySQL. Oracle wants to own Sun.
We can argue the merits, both pro and con, for that inheritance of ownership upon MySQL's future, but I think in the end, the EU should take its time in understanding Mega King Kong Industry like acquisitions and their effect upon creative open source market influences and alternatives.
The one thing this filthy American pig can appreciate, as I stare at my AT&T bill and ponder how humpty dumpty Ma Bell was put back together again, and why I still can't get FiOS, is that the EU tells King Kong NIMBY - to the benefit of emerging open source service markets there. Besides, Kerry, Hatch, Feinstein, and Boxer are probably the worst consultants we have on American Industry health. If those 4 alone are for it, I say let this merger die a quick and merciful death. Instinct alone from these 4's track record tells me both sides of the pond will be the better for it.

trust me, you don't want to be a carpenter.
Maybe you should try rough framing instead; spitting worm dirt, jalapeno eating contests con sus amigo Mexicanos, nail gun fights, and the satisfaction of throwing up a house in one day from a bare slab. Now, that's living brother. That right there will put some lead in your pencil.
