MySQL was bought for SUN for 1 billion dollars

Speaking of MySQL,MixiYaRakuten, Amazon and others are open source databases used to provide net services, but it was acquired. It seems to be true if you think what a joke. If it says one billion dollars, it is about 109.6 billion yen in Japanese yen. We acquired Sun Microsystems, which is famous for Java.

Details are as below.

The provision of MySQL itself seems to be done as before, but what kind of change will actually happen?
