All is just strategic talk. Their support will surely diminish in 1-2 years after the take over. However, I believe they will hang on the Virtualization tools and sparc/solaris duo. As for Java FX, it could be dropped from the box willingly which has near no developer community and support as of now.

You are right in that. I just hope they drive in the right direction Java/JVM/Glassfish and they free MySQL to the community.
