Oh, would you please lay off it already. The success of MySQL is not just their own. LAMP is what succeeded, where L stands for a "Linux distribution" (the kernel on its own is rather useless), which for all it matters, could be FreeBSD (sorry guys, you are parasites too). MySQL have been "parasites" (the "wrong doing" implying term you keep using) on the back of that as much as anyone.
Or are you suggesting that all those systems running LAMP have been running Windows NT/2000 Server? I think not. Most of the LAMP system have been either Red Hat or Debian (oh, and you guys are parasites too).
