oracle hits half century with Sun

Today, Oracle announced that they will be acquiring Sun for $7.4 billion. Undoubtedly, the main reason behind the acquisition was Java (Larry describes it “the single most important software asset we have ever acquired”). Surprisingly, there was no mention of MySQL which came as part of Sun’s acquisition. Wonder what future holds for mysql.

Also, If this WSJ article is accurate, this was Oracle’s half century (50th). Oracle has roughly acquired one company a month since 2005. If history has any indicator of future, we will probably see 9-10 more acquisition before the year is over! 🙂
