I agree; MySQL is of course not always faster than other SQL servers,
but we try to fix that by adding new optimizations the whole time (but
as I have said before, this is an ever ending job and other engines
improves too)

Matt is for example working on a query cache that will make MySQL much
faster for web-type application where you repeatedly ask the same
query over and over again...

Anyway, if you have some examples of type of queries that Oracle is
much faster than MySQL, I would really like to see those (so that I can put
optimization for these on my TODO list if they aren't there already :)
