The rest? Well, have a look at last week's study, as well as this year's
vulnerabilities count. Oracle puts its RHEL servers to shame (in thew sense
that it embarrasses the server as a whole). Oracle should just use what
already comes with RHEL... MySQL. Oh, wait. They already tired (albeit
unsuccessfully) to buy MySQL AB and later on nabbed BerkeleyDB (maybe
undermining the competition was the sole goal). More eyes on code == more
