Nope. As well, PostgreSQL is backed by a federation of companies, so
it will be terribly difficult for a competitor to 'buy' all of the
different businesses behind PostgreSQL.
By MySQL taking a sort of "one true company" approach behind the
commercialization of their software, they made it easy for other
companies to target them, leaving them very vulnerable IMHO.
It is this kind of behavior that caused a project I am very familiar
with to embark on a new quest, where anyone and everyone was welcome
to the party...
