LXer: Oracle Losing Its MySQL Grip to MariaDB

Published at LXer:

When it comes to Oracle as caretaker of FOSS projects, users are voting with their feet.The company that already very quickly lost control of OpenOffice when most of the projectís developers bolted, formed the Document Foundation and forked the code to create LibreOffice, is now in danger of losing another open source jewel it inherited when it took over Sun. LibreOffice, as you know, is now the defacto office suite of choice among Linux users and is rapidly gaining traction in the Windows world as well. OpenOffice is pretty much only a memory.
