LXer: If IBM Buys Sun What Happens to MySQL (and Sunís other projects)?

Published at LXer:

Thereís been alot of discussion about IBM being in talks with Sun Microsystems about a $6.1 billion acquisition. Initially Sunís stock (ticker: JAVA) shot up significantly while IBMís stock (ticker: IBM) initially dropped a few points before recovering to only a small loss. While this may or may not be good for each company, I started to wonder what would happen to some of the projects that Sun manages, specifically MySQL but also ZFS, OpenSolaris and others.
