Oracle has won approval from the U.S. government for their purchase of Sun (formerly Sun Microsystems). The deal is still subject to approval by the European Commission(EU). Oracle said they expect the deal to close by August 31 (2009).
I don't own stock in either company, but I'm interested to see what happens to many different Sun products, including:
The future of MySQL under Oracle is probably the biggest concern, but as I worked a lot with OpenSSO during the last 12 months, I have to wonder about that product as well. I really like what OpenSSO does, but there's no telling what will happen to it after the Oracle acquisition. Hopefully any product that is displaced by Oracle will find a new home somewhere else, probably spawning off new companies.
