Open-source database management software is in millions of hands. Find out how MySQL profitably blazed this trail, and how Kaj Arnö of MySQL is helping define GPL 3.0, and how MySQL lives with the complexity of software patents and multiple storage engines. Kaj also discusses how MySQL both competes and cooperates with Oracle. Also, whatever came out of last year's summit of open source database providers? Arno also discusses the forthcoming Falcon storage engine, MySQL-powered Netflix's lawsuit against Blockbuster, .Net plans, its SCO partnership, and the great vodka chocolate giveaway.

Kaj Arnö is responsible for communicating and evangelizing MySQL within the software development community -- as well as representing the community's interests to MySQL's senior management team. He has been with MySQL since 2001 in a variety of executive positions, including managing the company's relationship with SAP. Prior to MySQL, he founded and was CEO of Polycon Ab, a training and professional services provider in Finland and Germany. He began his professional programming career with Datema and IBM.
