Simon,

Could you please comment on this one later?

It's a little concerning in light of this:

"...and now is turning its attention to other acquisitions."

I am not complaining, but I am curious as to which business model Sun intends to adopt.

I'm expecting Mårten to adjust all of MySQL's business practices now they are part of Sun, without harming any established loyalties (so everyone is saying GNU/Linux is the priority for MySQL for example).

In this case it seems that they want the "Unlimited" plan to be aimed at small (presumably growing) business and are leaving room for a new plan for the sort of enterprises Sun deals with. What's the concern? I don't see an obvious Free software issue (but then again the coffee hasn't cut in yet this morning).

Thanks for the response. Matt has corrected his item and so have I. Zack is currently trying to explain why MySQL's page against patents has suddenly vanished.
