The Oracle MySQL Bid
February 16, 2006 Leave a comment
A quick follow up to this post. It looks like Oracle did indeed attempt to acquire MySQL AB. The answer for MySQL AB CEO Marten Mickos? “We will be part of a larger company, but it will be called MySQL”. So, are the 2 recent MySQL-related Oracle acquisitions really just an attempt to get MySQL to play ball and sell? Zend seems to fit into that play nicely (and was part of the recent rumor), since they are part of the P in LAMP. I'm sure we'll find out more in the near future as this all unfolds.
