Default Monty on broken MySQL promises: Oracle's going to fork it up

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/11...e_eu_promises/

Quote:
Oracle will break the promises it made to European regulators on MySQL nearly three years ago, according to the open-source database's co-creator Monty Widenius. In fact, he says, it has already broken a few.

Widenius told The Reg he's scared about the future of MySQL. He said he is concerned that if the database giant further breaches its commitments to the EU, it will produce an irreconcilable fork: with MySQL at Oracle going one way and those extending MySQL – such as Widenius's MariaDB and Facebook and Twitter – going another.
