<sounds of crickets> MySQL. Again, like oatmeal in the morning, it is there.

None of the above. You can get a surprising amount done with awk and text files. I do have a soft spot for /rdb http://www.rsw.com/.

It's unfortunate that there are three different entries for MySQL, MariaDB, and Percona. That's going to chop up the MySQL votes across three different segments, and perhaps give people the wrong impression.

Firebird forever!
Stable and lightweight. Easy-to-admin one-file database.
10+ years and 200+ installations of our system!
Most of them used without DBA assistance at all!

LOL!!! Here come the low post count Firebird shills! Every year they seem to crawl out of the woodwork to push Firebird to artificial high showing in this poll. Have you no shame?!

Apparently not..... I vote PostgreSQL ;D

I'd vote for JavaDB / Apache Derby if I could.
Been using it quite a lot last year, haven't ran into any real trouble...yet

I like both MariaDB 10x and Percona for 5.x. I voted for Percona, as I found the Percona toolkit to be quite useful at work, particularly using xtrabackup as a non-locking alternative to mysqldump.

Sybase is my favorite. We're doing a lot more in MS SQL Server nowadays, and it's shown promise but Sybase is still our gold standard. Postgres will probably be the next platform in our sights as we've heard good things about it. It would be nice to move to something that cost a little less!

sqlite is useful in certain ways, but I wouldn't jump so far as to say it's my favorite ... or even the DB platform of the year ...

MySQL would fall below sqlite, because making a backup is flat-out ridiculous; I just want to send a single command, darn it.

Just here to be pedantic about the poll wording again. ;^) But these are "database management systems" ("relational database management systems" if they all qualify). A "database" is an actual collection of data.

And like so many other former Sun "properties", MySQL begins it's slow fade to irrelevance post Oracle takeover.

Meamwhile, PostgreSQL has risen from relative obscurity (look back 4-5 years results) to a respectable second place (although it deserves first
