Abandoning MySQL - Switching to #MariaDB for Moodle

Mig, The New Inquiry, Feb 15, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I'm not on the verge of switching from MySQL but I watch developments like this closely. Here's the gist: "It seems that the venerable MySQL, which probably handles more data on the world wide web than any other database, is currently going the way of OpenOffice.org (which was recently removed from most Linux distributions and substituted with LibreOffice) and being replaced by a fork called MariaDB. As was the case with OO.o, the reason is largely the same - the mistrust many open-source developers harness towards Oracle which now controls the development of MySQL."
