I'm sure you've heard that Oracle has just tightened its grip over Java (see here) and I'd like to have a discussion on this.
- Does this mean companies using Java are doomed unless they pay?
- Yes, there's OpenJDK, but I wonder how long before Oracle finds a way to milk it too.
- Are folks using MySQL safe, then?
- Is it time to switch to MariaDB?
Or perhaps, all these questions are an overreaction to a regular and predictable business practice?
Please share your thoughts!
