"Corporations, by their nature, are not trustworthy beasts; even the most well-intentioned company is only one bad quarter (or one takeover) away from becoming an aggressive troll."

Well said. Any company can take an ugly turn based on the mercuriality of the market.

Google should have seen this coming I guess when Oracle bought Sun. On the other hand, Google could have bought Sun when they were going to base one of their main ventures over Java.

I would like to see how forks of MySQL(Mariadb, Drizzle etc), OpenSolaris flavors would see this. Virtualbox would also be closely watched, especially when KVM is growing pretty fast.
