Hmm. So Oracle has Oracle and MySQL.
Yeah -- then there will be only 2 big players: Oracle and Microsoft. The only free DB left is PostgreSQL.
mysql is open source in case you didn't notice, it's as free as it can ever be
But would you start a fork to keep it alive? Who will sponsor this new project?
There's already a MySQL fork called Drizzle, https://launchpad.net/drizzle. I'm sure we'll see more forks maturing over time.
