Oracle Buys Sun!

Today Oracle announced the acquisiton of Sun! Read offical news.

What does this mean to the Java community?
First Oracle has no one of the biggest open source databases in his portfolio: MySQL!
In the past few month Sun always compared the TCO of MySQL with Oracle.
What will be the postion of MySQL for Oracle?

From the Java language side I think it doesn't matter wether Oracle or IBM owns Java because both are mighty players in the Java Community Process.

On the operating system side maybe Oracle can enhance the status of Solaris as the standard OS for Oracle.

I'm very currios what will happen during the next few month...
