Much of the decision to implement MySQL or Oracle will depend on the licensing structure and portability. If the IT world gets the impression that Oracle's database will be reliable only on an Oracle OS, or if it costs too much to roll out an Oracle-dependent product, they will be loathe to commit their data. On the other hand, if the Oracle OS proves to be reliable and functional in its own right, and the Oracle database remains as versatile as it is today, an all-in-one package will appeal to some percentage of the market.
