I think you should include Kexi.

Every single time I've had the need for a database, sqlite has been perfect for it. What it does it does well.

MySQL
 
Easy to install on Debian and smoothly integrated into powerful web apps like phpMyAdmin, Gallery2, wikimedia, phpBB, and so on. I have been using MySQL for years and never had a problem with. It just works.

@interndan
I think Kexi is just a graphical interface to the actual databases.

Well my vote here goes to sqlite. A small hidden database that many applications use.

Postgres, of course. How could I take a DBMS whose defaults
are to allow a date of 30 February or to truncate too long
fields and just write a notification to the log seriously
for any real-life application? :D

Not to speak of issues we ran into with MySQL in the past...



Cheers,
Tink
