  1. i think its great to see more competition in the db market, especially targeting big time players like oracle. ive recently begun digging into the benefits of mysql and cant believe I haven’t done it sooner. im afraid db2 will be out of my price range much the same as oracle, but nevertheless will still spur other companies to stay competitive
