Sun Microsystems to Acquire MySQL...

It looks like Sun is making a huge move and acquiring MySQL. Here a portion from MySQL:

"...on January 16, 2008, MySQL and Sun Microsystems, Inc. announced an agreement for Sun to acquire MySQL. The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and is anticipated to close in late Q1 or early Q2 of 2008."

This kind of surprises me but at the same time I see it as a good strategic move on behalf of both parties.
