I have started to do database programming with python+mod_python and found sqlite really comfortable. It is not a network database. However, it's good enough for one-server web applications. The best point of sqlite is the license, it's really free for everything.

In my spare time I've been fooling around with doing some LAMP work and while MySQL may not have quite the power of Oracle, it gets my vote -- J.W.

MySQL is good enough for me. Easy to configure, easy to administer and quite fast and responsive.

MySQL will have to work for it

MySQL is currently third in the newsforge poll
Hopefully results this year will be based on a comparison between databases rather than just "It's good enough for me"

MySQL users don't know the benefits of Firebird

... and I'm no Firebird developer, just a database user

MySQL.
Often Forum & CVS do not support other databases.
