LXer: MySQL founder asks China, Russia to stop Oracle

Published at LXer:

According to Reuters, MySQL founder Michael "Monty" Widenius is now looking to China and Russia for help in his campaign objecting to the proposed acquisition of Sun Microsystems by Oracle. Previously, Widenius appealed to the European Commission (EC), which initially objected to the takeover, in order to prevent the deal from going through, however, Widenieus believes it now seems clear that the EC will approve the deal. He points to the petition on, a campaign site set up by Widenius, which he says has over 30,000 "signatures" from MySQL users from around the world.
