Oracle case against Google :Winners real open source databases like FirebirdSQL and PostgreSQL

My response and commentary related to this article

I get now more and more questions for tools to migrate
mysql databases to Firebird sql
and the site traffic for firebirdsql.org is growing at a higher rate than before check the alexa stats

http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/firebirdsql.org

So i guess the real opensource databases are now in right position now and the only thing that can gurantees that will stay this way is the fundations behind , it's community type process like the bazaar and not a cathedral type like in the mysql and solaris case

So replacements for oracle poisonous projects

 Oracle DB -> FirebirdSQL , PostgreSQL
 Mysql -> FirebirdSQL , Postgresql
 BerkleyDB -> FirebirdSQL, Sqlite

 Java -> php , qt , ruby , python ...
