"Overall, NuSphere MySQL is a pretty decent product. What it brings to the table is mainly convenience, but for many folks that's quite a bit. The Gemini table type is really the only thing that differentiates NuSphere's MySQL from the official MySQL release.

Is it worth paying $299 for something that you could largely assemble yourself? That depends entirely on your budget and how much time you'd like to spend installing and configuring software. If you're running Linux, odds are you have MySQL, PHP, Perl and Apache packages to install already.

NuSphere does sweeten the pot by including quarterly updates, which means you might spend less time performing updates. Since the support included with the $299 package is limited to installation, the support isn't that compelling."
