And he didn't mention that the mariaDB site still looks like amateur 
hour at the database factory. Mebbe Monty will get it together, I hope 
he does (a seriously competitive fork is exactly what Oracle needs to 
see), but so far he hasn't even caught up with MySQL 5.6 in features, 
and worse, MariaDB has a l-o-n-g way to go to catch up even with the 
professionalism of the company Monty sold, never mind that same company 
five years after he sold it.
