Something of the night

Ah, right, not who I thought it was referring to. Possibly not the best decision to include this guy's name in the article subheading (and also too often a potential indication of too much egotism).

This smells a bit: Monty and friends may have done very well by selling MySQL to SUN, but by doing a runner as soon as their new-found friends started getting dragged into the OraNUS black hole event horizon (although I can perfectly understand why), I'm afraid I rather doubt that they'll find many rich benefactors willing to trust them again another time.

And in an older and wiser world, it seems increasingly that PostgreSQL is the more favoured open source database of choice these days.
