An auction's afoot (no pun intended) to see who we'll be partnering with us to integrate their businesses and brands into our binary product distribution - the possibilities are limitless: people tend to print those documents, fax them, copy them, project them (and I know this annoys my friends in the free software community, but branding allows us to invest more in OO.o community and features, from which everyone benefits).It looks like we can all look forward to more Sun (or other) brands across OO.o, and auctions (with presumably un-disclosed terms & payments) for product positioning inside OO.o (as well as Java). The piece about investing more in OO.o is a bit rich though, given the fact of their declining investment. As a corollary - Is success having a Sun watermark on every printed page ?. Another interesting aspect of this blog is how Java (and Java ISVs) are being used to drive MySQL adoption: seems reasonable; but what if you contribute to (or use) Java but don't like MySQL ? (perhaps preferring the better postgresql eg.) and don't want your support and use of Java to turn into support for MySQL: bad luck I guess.

In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my own; mine, all mine ! and don't reflect the views of Collabora, SUSE, Novell, The Document Foundation, Spaghetti Hurlers (International), or anyone else. It's also important to realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy. Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences or fun.Michael Meeks (firstname.lastname@example.org)
