Exclamation Can't do it anymore...

In the spirit of the FOSS community, I just cant keep going out there and plugging MySQL anymore - Not after the EllisonCo Debacle.

In fact, Monty left the project while it was still under the tutelage of Sun.

For the same Reasons we're not going to See OpenOffice.org win out this year in the Office Suite category, I'm going to throw my vote to the fork, and heir-apparent:

MariaDB

Yadda, yadda, yadda... but when it comes to any serious, heavy lifting....

PostgreSQL kicks most of the rest of these to the curb. And those left standing are commercial offerings that are going to cost you an arm and a leg for anything other than hobbyist use.

If the above were not enough, however, PostgreSQL has major number upgrade release to 9.0 this past year, so really deserves acknowledgment. And I just get one hell of a kick out of knowing of a couple non trivial enterprise customers with tests in progress and plans to dump Oracle. Seems Larry put the screws to them a couple times too often and they're ready to tell him to go pound sand....

No... I do not believe you. EllisonCo would not go poo on their customers (Or the gems they got from Sun).

No. It is not true.

Firebird. Making great progress, still super-simple to deploy and work with, really, actually (not just "sort of") free, and completely untainted by Larry Ellison.

PostreSQL, of course, as every year.

E.g., with the efforts put in re the replication in the new release
it's just becoming more and more awesome all the time.



Cheers,

Firebird for sure!

A complete and free database server in a 5mb installation file is unbeatable!

Hackers always look for MySQL in their attempts to crack my sites.

I've used Postgresql from DayOne - clean, robust, easy to implement.
MySQL is . . . well, just too . . . clumsy!
