Oracle has wasted no time in Rebranding Sun products.

October 26th, 2010 1 comment

Unless you’ve been out of touch for a long time, you’ve heard that Sun bought MySql, and was subsequently bought by Oracle.  If you use java, you’ve noticed that Oracle hasn’t drug their feet in rebranding sun products as Oracle…  java url’s are now download.oracle.com instead of download.sun.com.

MySQL appears to have escaped the re-branding at the moment.  It will be interesting to see what Oracle does with it in the future…  If they killed it, they would tick off half the development community in the world, making them less-likely to choose Oracle products in the future (let’s face it, there are LOTS of un-objective decision makers in the world).  But they could put some spin on it, and use it to build their market share…  Let’s wait and see…
