Submission + - Study: Most MySQL Users Not Worried About Oracle (

itwbennett writes: The MySQL community is mostly neutral or positive about the open-source database's prospects under Oracle's stewardship, according to a newly released study by open-source BI vendor Jaspersoft. 43% of survey respondents said they expect MySQL to improve under Oracle's ownership and 35% said expect it to remain the same, while 22% are anticipating the database will suffer under the giant vendor's wing. 'From an individual user organization's standpoint, Oracle is innocent with respect to MySQL until proven guilty,' said analyst Curt Monash of Monash Research. 'Having MySQL be owned by a real [database] vendor is grounds for optimism about MySQL product evolution.'
