> Bad move. mSQL was out there and GPL'd and with no more than an extra letter in the name, MySQL simply forked away out of his control. Mr Hughes's company wasn't bought by Sun and I don't think many people remember him. Mr Widenius's company was, of course - and the only reason Mr Widenius made his money is because he was able to take over GPL'd code and had the wit not to repeat Hughes's mistake. He's welcome to dual license anything he produces
If MySQL was forked from GPL code, how could he offer to dual-license the resulting product?
