Two announcements


Sun Microsystems
made two announcements yesterday which could be a boost for the open source movement.

The first was that it had completed the $1bn purchase of the Open source MySQL ,which Sun Chief Executive Jonathan Schwartz described as a "crown jewel" that will enable Sun to offer a complement of open-source technologies that rival Microsoft's proprietary offerings.

The second is that Sun's cutting-edge microprocessor designs are going to be studied at China's leading universities. The three-year collaboration gives the People's Republic of China access to the tools and the freedom to develop the intellectual property framework it needs to cultivate native microprocessors and microprocessor engineers, a Sun press release said.
