Well, since you admitted to being a newbie, I would suggest that you learn
with MySQL. It supports several types of data storage (memory only, ISAM,
full-relational) and both transacted and non-transacted execution models.
That's just about everything you could want a database to do. Development
is nearing completion on Stored Procedures which means that Triggers are
not far away. Those last two elements really round out the already
impressive features built into MySQL.
Sometime, in the far distant future, if you find that MySQL is somehow
unable to meet your development needs then I encourage you to find a
product that can do what you need. However, I have found very few
situations that MySQL was not up to the job.
The only other thing to consider is whether Cold Fusion has integrated its
development environment better with one or the other. I don't use it (CF)
or I could comment on whether it's easier to use one DB over the other.
my two cents....
