Need to calrify, validate this conclusion :

>> Our aplications will use sql instructions and will link to the db using the odbc driver.
>> And the will not distribute our software as open source.

>Given the above, I don't think you need non-GPL licenses.

What Im reading is they ARE going to distribute a commercial application that uses ODBC and allows customer to choose DB. (no mysql shipped)

So in this model the commercial applicaiton would not be impacted by the end customers choice of GPL MySQL? I mean thats what I want to hear and I'm glad. I may be reading into this thought.
