Doesnt mean anything if you haven't tried the others. DB was too complicated MySQL was too goofy Postgres ends up being winner.

I think MariaDB should be it, but did not test yet to be sure.

InnoDB?

Why is InnoDB listed. Its a pluggable storage engine for MySQL not a stand alone DBMS.
As of MySQL 5.5, its the default storage engine.

I've updated the wording to "InnoDB Plugin", to reflect the fact that it isn't the built-in InnoDB.
