Is MariaDB replacing MySQL?

Scott Wilson, , Jun 17, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Scott Wilson on the changing database landscape: "there has been a steady trickle of announcements from organisations switching from MySQL to MariaDB. From next month, MariaDB will replace MySQL as the default database in Fedora.  And now RedHat has announced its doing the same. Even Wikimedia started using it." For my own part, I continue to use MySQL (also also Enterprise Red Hat, though my provider is switching to CentOS, which is responding to RedHat price increases). Also, PostgreSQL is a popular open source alternative to MySQL.
