STOCKHOLM, Sweden and SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 28,
2000--MySQL and VA Linux Systems,
Inc. (Nasdaq: LNUX - news) today announced a strategic alliance to
help accelerate the use and development of the MySQL database, one of
the most
popular databases for Linux. As part of this initiative, MySQL has
been re-licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL) from the
Software Foundation, the same license used by the Linux operating
system kernel. Programmers around the world can now freely distribute
modifications and enhancements to the latest beta and future releases
of MySQL source code. 

Way to go, VA Linux.  The fasted db now truly open-source.  Now if you
can get someone to open-source a matter transporter ;-)
