Most of these projects were inherited from Sun.
> Oracle is just not capable of doing Open Source.
True. Sun was always flirting with open source. They were one of the most open proprietary companies (releasing Java source code, buying and liberating Staroffice, ...), but they always had a very close grip on these projects.Apparently, being neither open nor closed is not a good business model.
Oracle, it seems, has no clear vision for these projects, dumped Openoffice on Apache, and it seems is not ready, but still obliged, to deal with Java, Mysql, Solaris, and other stuff.
