"... We've decided that it's time to feature some of the
attributes that won MySQL that award. With easy installation and
features such as database replication and integration with Perl,
MySQL provides a scalable database solution for everyone from small
developers to large database dependent applications."
"First, if you don't have MySQL on your system already, you can
download it from http://www.mysql.com/downloads. The latest,
official, stable release (as of this writing) is 3.22.32. However,
the newer 3.23.xx releases are now listed as "gamma" and are quite
stable and recommended for new installations. The MySQL development
team labels their releases conservatively. Therefore, in this
article we will be working with the 3.23.30 release."
