I can already see them renaming it to 'Sun Java(R) System Database Server'

Does this mean the world's fastest enterprise DB to be the world's slowest? :)

Ain't that bad - Sun Micro needed a DB for a long time. And I guess the same engineers will write the code as before. I'm just find Sun Micro's naming policies kinda funny!
