mysql for me, no change in that! I have tried postgresql, but i still work best with mysql.

mysql is losing its positions. postgre is getting better.

PhillipHuang 12-31-2006 09:27 PM

Berkeley DB is my choice.

My blog and webpages are still powered by MySQL. But I'm keeping my eye very closely on PostgreSQL

PostgreSQL for me. Just a little over mysql. If I ever had to recommend one for a company though it would take me a bit to decide as both are great alternatives.

i'm using MySQL. So i vote for it.

kesara 01-03-2007 07:34 AM

I prefer MySQL.

it depends on the situation. My friend is oracle expert; he said it has more function and reports support ,dataware housing is better,etc. If i have to use with web pages, mysql is the perfect balance. Another cases PosgreSQL is better. That's my humble opinion.

I've always tended to stick with MySQL. It'll be interesting to see the results of this poll, and maybe I'll have a look at installing and finding out more about the most popular database from this result!

MySQL mostly, postgresql when required.

Samoth 01-03-2007 04:52 PM

Using MySQL, mostly because I found it easier to set up with Mythtv.

Also using it for Cacti.

I'm not running Enterprise type stuff so 90% of the "alleged" extra stuff in Postgre doesn't interest me at all.

MySQL is so easy to get up and running, integrates easily with php and apache that even a dummy like me can get it working on both Windows and Linux in minutes and connectivity using OBDC -(allows other apps such as VB / PERL / C++ etc to connect to your DB) works fine.

For Heavy duty corporate stuff ORACLE, SAP, or DB2 might be the answer but at a humungous price.

I'd suspect for most users on these Forums the FREE MySQL is more than up to any job it's asked to do - but it's great there is at least another one out there worthy of consideration (Postgre) as competetion ensures development is kept up to date and required features such as decent roll back and security are built in as required.

However For most people not in a large corporate environment when it comes to Databases I think K.I.S.S (Keep it small and simple) is the rule here.

So for me MySQL gets the vote as it's still the easiest to install and operate.
