In that article, unless I missed it, they didn't mention the deal between
SAP and MySQL.
SAP, MySQL Sign Open-Source Database Deal (By MARC L. SONGINI, JUNE 02,
2003, Computerworld)
"SAP AG last week said it plans to hand off lead development of its SAP DB
database software to MySQL AB and work with MySQL to deliver an
enterprise-class version of that company's namesake open-source database."

I think MySQL is definitely worth learning. You can find it for a whole
bunch of different platforms here:

WILL OPEN-SOURCE THREATEN ORACLE, IBM AND MS? | Internet News
How big of a threat are open-source databases to software giants like
Oracle, who hold most of the market and revenue share today? MySQL
could be the biggest challenger to Oracle, and even Microsoft and IBM
in the database market. MySQL is making inroads as a database
alternative for small businesses or departmentally inside larger
enterprises. Ultimately, the groundswell of support for MySQL could
propel it on a Linux-like course to stardom as companies look to
reduce TCO for databases.

Interesting article.... Is this the wave of the future for the small
consultant??

If the CEO is smart he will start a certification program and release
upgrades every 18 months. It keeps the revenue comming it.
