Similar comment by Oracle employee has appeared on CFEngine mailing list when we decided to drop Berkeley DB in favour of Tokyo Cabinet: he pitched the merits of Berkeley DB, but was of little help to solve the problems we were facing with Berkeley DB.

Distributions ponder MariaDB switch

Every time I have to deal with Oracle for any product for any sort of support for any reason with any level of contracts... it makes me want to hurt people, even myself to make the pain of dealing with Oracle stop.

Moving to MariaDB just to avoid dealing with Oracle seems like a decent move and I wouldn't blame distributions for wanting to do that.
