Interesting perspective at the Mysql AB deal

Stephano gives in “Why Sun bought MySQL” an interesting perspective to the deal :

By associating the MySQL brand with their own, not only they will have access to their know-how and experience in managing such dynamics, but will also have a premium story to tell to their investors and stock owners that might end up considering this new management direction to be smart and farsighted and not just a blatant and late open source “me too”-ism.
