Subject:RE: MySQL dying?
View as plain text  
Oracle is investing a lot into improvements in MySQL and releasing most of it in the
Community version.  

Meanwhile, MariaDB is a serious contender.  It is a drop-in replacement for MySQL.  And
Percona's Xtradb (included in MariaDB) is a drop-in replacement for InnoDB.  If Oracle
did something nasty, there are exit strategies that do not involve porting to some other
RDBMS.

I say "don't worry".
