"Mysql is a semi-commercial database which enjoys widespread popularity in the Linux community. MySQL is available for most Linux platforms (i386, Sparc, etc), as well as a few non-Linux and even non-Unix platforms."

"Development of MySQL is continuing at a rapid pace. In fact, the pace of development rivals that of most Open Source projects."

"MySQL has found a niche in the Linux world, providing simplicity and speed, while still providing enough features to keep programmers happy. Database programmers will like the query functionality and wide array of client libraries. Database administrators will find the system lacking major features, but may find it useful for simple databases which don't warrant spending the cash for a big name database."
