Hold your horses

Lots of Linux code developed at

(including the Btrfs developed at ORCL and merged in the Linux kernel last
February that makes Linux competitive with Microsoft's ReFS)

License: GPLv2

License: CDDL / GPL

License: CDDL / GPL

License: GPL2+CE

MySQL Community Edition: GPL

JavaDB: Apache 2.0 License

BerkeleyDB: 2-clause BSD license <>

So while I wouldn't touch the firm's propietary products, that they are
putting lots of development dollars into plenty of open source projects is
hardly what I'd call "anti-Freedom" or "anti-choice".
