I disagree that Jonathan's comments were unconstructive. He accurately
points out some reasons in his two messages why MySQL is likely to be
given short shrift in big shops. And those shops are where you're
likely to find Oracle. So those reasons are valid points of comparison.
Some of his conclusions are, in fact, exactly what you would infer
based on the MySQL manual itself. For instance, the manual points
out that one reason for MySQL's speed is that it doesn't have triggers,
commit/rollback, etc. From that I presume that adding such things
to MySQL would, while increasing its bulletproof-ness, slow it down.
