MySQL co-founder quits Sun

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 5 years ago

Sun Microsystems 0

BobB-nw (666) writes "Michael "Monty" Widenius, the original developer of the open-source MySQL database, has left Sun Microsystems and is starting his own company, Monty Program Ab, he said in a blog post Thursday. http://monty-says.blogspot.com/ Widenius and Sun had a slightly rocky relationship since the vendor bought MySQL last year for $1 billion. In a much-discussed November blog post, he trashed Sun's decision to give MySQL 5.1 a "generally available" designation, saying it was riddled with serious bugs. Meanwhile, Monty Program Ab will be "a true open-source company," with only a small number of employees who "strive to have fun together and share the profit we create. The company will work on the Maria project, a storage engine Widenius and others developed, he wrote."
