MySQL is ‘not’ an Open Source project

Thank to Andreano Lanusse for posting a link which confirms some of worries about the current state of the MySQL as an Open Source project discussed earlier:

Michael Widenius (often called Monty), the main author of the original version of the open-source MySQL database and a founding member of the MySQL AB company, explain in this presentation the future of MySQL and why he believes MySQL is not a  Open Source project, very interesting presentation.

There is a catch though. MySQL team wants it to be such. It is just hard in current state and there is a desire to change the product evolution direction to attract a “new blood”, to learn from PostgreSQL business/development model.

  • About

    From being a junior developer all the way to Development Manager position, I was always interested in new technologies. Passionate speaker, IT junky, developer, architect, team lead, and development manager - many hats, one goal - making software better and closer to people’s needs. For the most part I am using my blog as a scratch pad, writing small articles on things which I came across, was asked about more then once, and which would otherwise require additional research again and again.
