Comment: Oracle might see MySQL as competition? (Score 3, Insightful) 336

by etangreal (#41034375) Attached to: Is MySQL Slowly Turning Closed Source?
What if Oracle is planning to slowly slowly kill off/degrade MySQL? By with-holding the test cases / not putting in effort into new features/development. If opensource contributors cant test properly - they would create a buggy, unstable/inferior product in the future. According to what I know - Oracle is in the database business, MySQL is "competing" database of sorts... Why would oracle want to keep it around? Its not in their interest, right?
