    MySQL CEO Marten Mickos told Computer Business Review the company plans to go public: 'Now entering its twelfth year, the company has built up just less than 10,000 paying customers, and an installed base estimated to be close to 10 million... When it does go public, MySQL will be one of only a handful of open source vendors to do so. Red Hat, VA Linux (now VA Software), and Caldera (now SCO Group) led the way in 1999 and 2000...'"

    That's interesting, I didn't even realise it was a company, I just assumed it was a "project".

    People like freebies, that is my experience, if you give peole option for a free item and options to buy a premium one just for a little bit of money, they always go for the freebie :(

    It was a project sponsored by a company. In the days when I hang around their forums I remember they used to ask you to pay for them to ask a feature that does not exist yet in MySQL.
