Default Oracle raises prices for MySQL

From http://www.h-online.com/open/news/it...L-1130988.html

In future, Oracle will offer three paid MySQLEditions at subscription fees of $2,000, $5,000 and $10,000 per year. The previous $600 "Basic" subscription has been dropped, in effect more than tripling the price for some customers. These subscriptions do not represent different levels of support, but rather different mixes of software. The free "Classic" edition provides only an embedded database with a MyISAM back end. The transactional InnoDB is available in the Standard, Enterprise and Carrier-Grade Editions, the Cluster NDB engine only in the Carrier-Grade Edition.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump

Wow...I would expect as much from Oracle...but tripling the entry level price? That's getting on up in Microsoft's territory.

That is ludicrous, but hopefully a good thing for ProgreSQL :-D
