RIP Ingres

Well, after more than a month, the folks at Ingres came back to the community with ABSOLUTELY NO CHANGES in their licensing. Ingres is indeed “viral.”

So, the head fake is complete (ie, biz friendly CA-TOSL to viral GPL), and Ingres Corporation has charted it’s course to irrelevance. Again, this is just one opinionated blogger but I think Ingres won’t gain traction in new markets now (see previous post why GPL is bad for Ingres, not in general, just Ingres)

I’m sad. Ingres is (should I say was?) cool. RIP.
