Subject:RE: MySQL vs. Oracle (not speed)
View as plain text  
Hi,

I am beging using MySQL for quite a while and it is a
very good choice if you don't really need stored
procedures. MySQL provides a pretty good
implementation of a subset of MySQL-92, performance is
great, it is cross-platform, provides transactions,
and its price... well is free.

Hope it helps.
