Open Government Momentum

It's great to see the ongoing momentum and support that open source software is finding by United States government. The White House recently announced its Open Government Directive - an initiative requiring each federal agency to make high value data publicly available and to also quickly come up with formal open government plans. Click here for the announcement on the White House blog and also be sure to check out a statement from Open Source for America!

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.

Sun.com/ponytail is now live

Kudos to Steve Gillmor for suggesting the site, Sun.com/ponytail in his recent video.  We've now activated the site.

Since Steve is so concerned about Sun's open source activities we've aimed this url site at the site that gives an overview of all Sun's open source efforts.

That said, we do appreciate the traffic and as always continue to be dazzled by Steve's rapier wit.
