We talked live with them. It looks and sounds like a good deal.
The Open Season team got on the phone with Marten Mickos, CEO of MySQL, and Rich Green, SVP of Software at Sun Microsystems, shortly after the announcement of the acquisition was made. You can listen in here.
As Matt and Dave see it, Sun may well become the center of the open source universe, acquiring a bevy of companies. Are Matt and Dave jealous of Marten's riches? Yes they are.
"It has been like walking around in a candy story," Mickos said, after looking over Sun's vast computing labs.
Enjoy the podcast. We did.
