Sun Studio 12 & MySQL Listed as "Best Products of 2008" By Mir PC

Russian PC World magazine, Mir PC, has published their list of the "Best Products of 2008".

They look at a long list of technologies for this annual survey - everything from digital cameras & games to developer tools, databases & motherboards

And I'm pleased to say that Sun had 2 winners in the software category!

Sun Studio 12 for "Best Open Source Development Tool"  and  MySQL for "Best Open Source DBMS"

The original story (in Russian) is here.

Since my Russian language skills are nonexistent, the team was kind enough to send me an automatically translated page.

Congratulations!

MySQL Named 'Database of the Year' by LinuxQuestions.Org

The members of LinuxQuestions.org have once again selected MySQL as their favorite "Database of the Year".   Thanks to everyone who voted for Sun's open source database!

There's more good news on the MySQL front.  Last week, we passed another impressive milestone:  MySQL 5.1 has now been downloaded more than 2 million times since it initially 'shipped' in late November.

You can download your copy of MySQL 5.1 here.

Winners of the Developer.com Product of the Year 2009 are Announced

Award_logoDeveloper.com’s 2009 Product of the Year were announced with Sun receiving 1st place in 9 out of 12 categories, along with 2 additional finalist positions.

Rosemarie Graham notes, "Not only were more votes received than in the last two years, but there was also a clear margin of victory between first and second place. Each winner won its category with a respectable margin. In the case of Java Tools the winner had almost three times the votes of the others finalists in the category combined."

NetBeans had 5 top honors, with MySQL Workbench grabbing 1st place for DB Tools and two more top place finishes for Open Source and Security.

That's a nice bit of data that illustrates the popularity of the world's most popular open source database. 

Zack Urlocker has a post up on his blog  - complete with an "old school" photo of McDonald's to highlight the 1 million served. And if you don't have your copy yet, you can download it here.
