Subject:Increase in popularity of MySQL
View as plain text  
One way to measure the popularity of a product,service, or event is to
search for its name on and see what the bids are - how much
webmasters are willing to pay for a click-through for their site to be
listed #1. I applied this test to mysql a month ago, and the result was
$0.01. Now it is $0.05 ! Here it the comparison with other databases:

Database	Cost per click-through

Oracle		0.32
Informix	0.04
DB2		0.05
SQL Server	0.11
Sybase		0.15

If you want to know other, to to and do your own
