"It is absolutely right that MySQL business model was designed the way it was
on purpose, deliberately, even to make money. And such a business can be sold
to another business, etc... And from an open source point of view you might
think this was a bad model and the reason we are now in this mess (debatable,
but valid point)"
I don't think there is much room for debate on that. Monty in his discourses
isn't even pointing to this fact which is one of the reasons for me to
believe that this is a self serving position. If I create a mess and wanted
someone else to clean it up, the least I should be doing is to acknowledge if
not apologize for the fact that I created the mess in the first place.
