MySQL to adopt Firebird architecture

Mauricio Longo writes "Since the aquisition of InnoDB, by Oracle, MySQL has been in a difficult position: InnoDB was the centre piece of its 5.0 release. It has been discussed extensively in the Firebird community that MySQL should make a strategic move and use Firebird as its enterprise level relational/transactional engine.

MySQL chose this path -- in a round-about sort of way -- by making the aquisition of Netfrastructure and hiring Jim Starky, owner of Netfrastructure."
