Mysql,, yeah right! I like it, a lot; especially because i'm a big fan of the OpenSource community, it's just not come along enough in the Database world to be considered an elite database. Additionally; i've come across to many security issues with mysql to yet consider it able to compete with Oracle, etc. Unfortunately, i gotta stick w/Oracle.

MySQL does everything reasonably well and it is easy to install and use. It makes a great DB for web applications although I prefer to use compiled CGI rather than PHP for speed with MySQL fro speed.

I voted for Firebird for being an enterprise-level database which in my opinion should be the basis for selecting a database. Not mention, the excellent support that Firebird communities providing.

Thumbs up There is only one professional system..

In the oposite of MySQL, Postgresql knows the SQL Standard.
Postgresql supports nested transactions!
Postgresql can a lot more than any layman's db.

It can only be Postgre!! Thats the one!!
