Re: That's just not true

"The two main forks of MySQL, MariaDB and Percona Server, are both based on the Oracle source code,"

This is bullshit. All three are based on open source software Widenius et al. wrote. None of that is owned by Oracle and never has been.

" MySQL veterans like Monty Widenius and the folks at Percona recognise that Oracle has added value to MySQL."

Only to keep it alive as otherwise MariaDB would have killed it out of the market in a second.
