Congrats to MySQL, already some rumors?

Just a quick post to congratulate the MySQL folks on this acquisition.  Much has been said in the blogosphere so I don’t need to repeat it.  As far as I am concerned, as an IT consultant doing a lot of open source, this is a great validation of the open source model.

I find it funny that some journalists are already speculating on what’s going to happen next.  Take for example Rich Seeley from SearchSOA.com who predicts that Sun will now go on to buy Greenplum, Talend, and why not Pentaho and JasperSoft (probably not both, though!)  I don’t know if these vendors find these rumors to be funny – well, at least Talend had the good grace of commenting on it in their blog.

We’ll see what the future has in store for open source.
