Hmmm, that doesn't compute, from my point of view. That is precisely why I opened this topic. Why would a huge corporation suddenly abandon its main cash cow in favor of a freebie? Slowly killing the freebie seems more likely to me, now that Oracle Corp. owns it. I am not sure as to why people are not trying to run away from MySQL, but they obviously are not.
