This will be a close one.... My vote goes to PostgreSQL.

Unless you're doing enterprise level storage, SQLite will cover most if not all of your database needs.

Surprised that my favorite, Sybase is not in the poll. Used it back in my working days. Ah those were the days... ;)

I actually use none of the above now. LibreOffice Base and Calc cover my database needs now-a-days.

Sybase was removed after the 2008 MCA's, after it got zero votes.

Thanks. It would have got at least one vote this year... LOL

I haven't used Sybase since I retired, but have fond memories. It still in use today at my old work place. Now which one to choose, that's a tough one for sure.

I've been using Oracle more and more at work these days (not at home though)

Database
 
Why isn't Kexi on the list?

xma 01-03-2012 10:38 AM

I am a DBA and I use many of them (Sybase, Oracle, MySQL, DB2, ...) but at home, my preference goes to PostgreSQL

Interesting endorsement. I'll have to check it out. (Already voted, though. ;))

metalaarif 01-04-2012 06:14 AM

clauslack 01-04-2012 08:24 AM

For me.

Firebird SQL
Regards

AlexGone 01-04-2012 09:25 AM

FirebirdSQL is the best. As good as MSSQL Standard, but works at Linux, Windows and others - for free!
