This industry sure moves fast


Owing to an incredibly busy month with family and university, this has been the quietest has been since January 2008 (check it out). For interest sake, I thought I'd check out one of the few things I was talking about back then:

Trolltech bought by Nokia, MySQL bought by Sun Microsystems… what is the world [of free and open source software] coming to?

While surprising at the time, Nokia has since found itself on the rocks and looking to divest itself of Qt, and Sun Microsystems was bought by Oracle. Just goes to show just how fast this industry moves!
