This wouldn't have happened if Oracle hadn't decided that they wanted to poison everything they touch.

So take a letter, Maria
Address it to my wife
Say "I won't be coming home,
Gonna start a new life".

I feel like that article repeated itself redundantly many times.

Maybe they should try to say one thing once.

It is bad practice to say the same thing over and over without adding new content.

Otherwise it can get repetitive if you say the same thing multiple times without adding new content.

Been planning on switching myself for my next releases / projects.  The best part is that unless you are out in the 95% percentile of feature users, it's a just a drop-in upgrade.

I just read that as "Maria, I just met a DP named Maria"
My bad

And now Oracle is stuck trying to figure out how do you solve a problem like MariaDB.

My guess is that they won't be able to catch the cloud and pin it down.

MariaDB is a fork of MySQL so this isn't really a surprise.  I'm only surprised that it's taken this long

ikanreed: This wouldn't have happened if Oracle hadn't decided that they wanted to poison everything they touch.


Too true.  Oracle doesn't want to do anything it can't monetize.  MySQL would have been better off if Oracle let it go instead of slowly killing it.

What Maria might look like:

I'd query that repeatedly.

Should run OpenQM instead, but that's not really headline friendly unless you go for the slutty Queen Mary jokes

THIS. 100x this in fact.

Oh wow. That's kinda huge.

That said, f*ck Oracle.
 
2013-09-13 02:17:49 PM  
Interesting.

I need to do a new Ruby On Rails project this fall.  I'll check this out.  Anyone recommend a good management console (Windows 7) for it, or is that built in?

Well, it's efficient, it's got core database features, but it lacks the "any idiot can manage it" features of MySQL.

Well that and Ellison somehow conned SF into giving him millions of dollars based on completely phony attendance projections.

It's not over yet, you would have to be some sort of oracle to see how it all pans out.

This is a late parrot: So take a letter, Maria

See, I instead immediately got this crap stuck in my head.

Who names their database Maria?

And putting the mfing Ask toolbar in the java installer as a hidden default

Oracle is the BEST!!

Did you know when you install mySQL now, it charges your CC $100 for every click in the installer?  HA HA HA!

When you use Jet, you use Jet all the way
From your first dataset to your last key array.

Yeah.  I'm definitely going to check this out.  If Google is migrating to it, then the tides are definitely changing.  I deal with a lot of Magento clients and as of late I've been running into issues with MySQL for high volume stores with lots of products, I'm wondering if this could help with some of the myriad of issues that those types of applications ultimately end up having.

I'm more of a software engineer, but any way I can make things better, I'm all for.  And past history has shown that once the Googs backs something, it gets better and better.

No idea in general but FWIW, Facebook runs MySQL.  They have like 700+ clusters.
 
2013-09-13 09:44:14 PM  
You know what?   F*ck MySQL.  MySQL is so full of dumbass behavior that it's become a running joke.  I'm sure Maria isn't that far off, even with the patches from Google.  Oracle is a real powerhouse with an SQL optimizer that doesn't suck, and much better scalability.

Having said that, F*ck Oracle, too.  Their DB software will cost you about half of your company.

So, PostGreSQL.  The only reason why Google is going the Maria route is because they were a MySQL shop, and they didn't feel like changing all of their SQL.

Huh.  All I know is that for years I could not change my Facebook profile picture.

I've used a lot of MySQL, but I've never had time to play with PostGreSQL.  What are the big differences?

Disclaimer:  I've used neither, unless you count writing QUEL against Ingres in the early nineties - I make my living atop SQL Server and/or Oracle.  But here's what I gather:

Postgres is good at relational standards, and is free.  MySQL is free, and is good at being already installed everywhere you might want to host a light-duty website.

I never wanted enough  to unlearn what E. F. Codd taught me in college to deal with MySQL, but Postgres is starting to catch my attention.
