Mysql - Part of Linux Foundation - Can it be for real???!!!

With the acquisition of Sun - Oracle has come a full circle with its offering.

Now the question in everyone's mind - What happens to MySQL.  I am sure it will continue to be nurtured, promoted and all that. Will it be done with fair practices?  Why not donate Mysql to Linux community or Apache foundation or better still promote/nurture Mysql as an independent organization?

Why Linux ?

It is proven beyond an iota of doubt - How to manage community software platform with Linux? In the world of Light (LAMP) M is a very important member. 

Oraclians - please donate Mysql to Linux Foundation!!

By the way - This is my personal opinion!!
