Sun to begin Close sourcing parts of MySQL Development

By reeset / On / In General Computing

I remember mentioning (http://blog.reeset.net/archives/490) that I wasn’t sure why, but I wasn’t wild about Sun aquiring MySQL.  And then today, I seen this link picked up on Slashdot (http://jcole.us/blog/archives/2008/04/14/just-announced-mysql-to-launch-new-features-only-in-mysql-enterprise/).  Apparently, Sun will start close sourcing parts of the code-base, making specific elements of the database (think enterprise level functionality), available to MySQL Enterprise customers.  I can’t say that this suprises me, though it does disappointment.
