First thought was "oh crap"
Considering there's what now for DB stuff? Oracle and MS SQL Server? (as Oracle will now own MySQL). What's the odds of them keeping the MySQL... well.... free and available? And open office (the free one)?
I can see them stripping out almost all the features from these free apps, then putting them back as a "new and improved" yet costing version. Or just taking MySQL and not doing anything new with it (or taking things out) then offering a Oracle DB with more features (ex: what MySQL would've been if they developed it) for "free" but with certain things removed so people will shell out the cash for the full Oracle DB versions.
Oh and apparently the new version of mysql (5.4) which is pre-release now has support for up to 16 processors and multi-cores.... yeah.... don't see oracle wanting to maintain Oracle lite + mysql... I'd see them merging the two if anything, which would basically end MySql as it's known (unless they want to pleasantly surprise the world and drop Oracle Lite and just add that functioning to MySql and keep it open source).
