    • What is Open Source?
      • It means that we provide a free version of our software (Community Edition) to the development community
        • The Community assures high quality and reliability
        • The Community offers input with regards to feature content
        • The Community can take “validated” products mainstream
      • It is licensed under General Public License (GPL)
        • End users can use it in development or production environments
        • End users can modify and change the code
        • They cannot redistribute the source code they have modified
        • They cannot embed our product into theirs and resell it (that requires a commercial license)
    • Analyst Mindshare “ Besides having the largest mindshare in the industry, MySQL is well known for reliability, ease of use, and high performance. MySQL has broad support for transactional applications and embedded databases. Many large enterprises run MySQL to support mission-critical, custom applications.” – Forrester. MySQL version 5.0 was released last fall and is the first release with full SQL compliance and the necessary functionality to support full applications. During the next several years, this DBMS will attract much attention and contend seriously with the other DBMS engines for application platform choice.” - Gartner 70% will use OS DBMS’s by end of 2008
