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 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. )

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