If you ask Marten (MySQL CEO) about what is the #1 benefit open source brings to MySQL, he will probably answer: "quality" (with a Finnish accent, that nicely matches my Italian). Successful open source projects enjoy the benefit of having the largest QA team on the planet. Testing is everything, when it comes to quality.

Testing is important, very important for a database server. Testing is EVERYTHING in mobile. You cannot even think about supporting a mobile platform for the mass market, if you cannot test your application on every device on the world.

Guess what? This year one billion people will get a new phone.

The Honest Public License (HPL)
On November 13, 2006, Sun released much of Java as free and open source software, (FOSS), under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). On May 8, 2007, Sun finished the process, making all of Java's core code available under free software/open-source distribution terms, aside from a small portion of code to which Sun did not hold the copyright.
The iPhone is the best damn thing that ever happened to mobile.
June 29th is the turning point for the mobile market, the one we have waited for years. The fun starts now.
