Seems like I see a lot like this.
 
Red Hat Ditches MySQL, Switches To MariaDB

"Red Hat will switch the default database in its enterprise distribution, RHEL, from MySQL to MariaDB, when version 7 is released. MySQL's first employee in Australia, Arjen Lentz, said Fedora and OpenSuSE were community driven, whereas RHEL's switch to MariaDB was a corporate decision with far-reaching implications. 'I presume there is not much love lost between Red Hat and Oracle (particularly since the "Oracle Linux" stuff started) but I'm pretty sure this move won't make Oracle any happier,' said Lentz, who now runs his own consultancy, Open Query, from Queensland. 'Thus it's a serious move in political terms.' He said that in practical terms, MariaDB should now get much more of a public footprint with people (people knowing about MariaDB and it being a/the replacement for MySQL), and direct acceptance both by individual users and corporates."

I can deal with the little hit of ads they show. And they let you skip them. I deal with a lot of free services though so I am very used to it.

We stopped in early (around 4:30pm) on Saturday. On the way in, I only noticed one other table. Our group was 3 adults and two kids. I bring this up because of my major quibble: slow service. Other minor quibbles were delays in getting our drinks and sitting with two kids (8 & 5), but only offering crayons, etc. at the END of the meal while waiting for dessert. Now that I've gotten the "bad" stuff out of the way, I can focus on what was good about our experience. 4 of our choices were: * Kids spaghetti * Shrimp and steak pasta * pikilia * Greek salad (with chicken) This was all REALLY GREAT FOOD! Who knew this was sitting right in Pella this whole time? Even the kids spaghetti had really great flavor! My only quibble with the food was the gyro meat was a bit "tough". I'm used to gyro meat that folds easily with a fork. This was darker than I'm used to and was a tiny bit tough to manipulate with just a fork. The stuffed grape leaves were served cold and had only cheese in the middle. They were tasty, but different than what I've had in the past. Otherwise, everything was excellent and we won't hesitate to stop in again when we're in the area. One last note. We really loved the feel of the decorations. My wife has spent time in Greece and she said it brought back memories of sitting outdoors in a little cafe in Greece. All I know is that the decor was interesting to look at and made for a refreshing feel in "small town Iowa".

Stopped in for the first time today at lunch. It was wonderful. We had the muffaletta and a toastie with cups of beer cheese soup. It all tasted fantastic. The place is very relaxed, but welcoming. I was not familiar with most items on the menu, which just makes me want to order them to see what they are. We didn't see anything that we'd consider "kid friendly", but we (the adults) will definitely stop in again. As much as we loved it, we have two gripes: the seats are stools like from high school science class. They hurt after a short while, which does nothing for the experience. The other gripe is: soup spoons! The soup was fantastic, but trying to eat it from a regular teaspoon was an exercise in frustration control. I mean good soup needs to be service with a soup spoon so you can get a mouthful and enjoy it.

We really enjoy Panera, in general. I have two young girls and the oldest has now migrated from their mac and cheese to different salads. I really enjoy their salads, too. Especially their steak and blue cheese version. That being said, the salad I mentioned is off the menu. I guess due to a regular menu change...they really need to bring it back. So, we generally like them, the food is tasty, and you eat with real bowls and utensils. I will finish with my one gripe about this location. We generally get there about 4:30pm and leave around 5:15pm on a weekday. The frustrating thing is that the employees don't appear to be busy, yet there are large piles of dirty plates at each station and the tables are not wiped off. This last time (yesterday), there was literally no clean table to use, we had to wipe it off ourselves. While we ate an employee did make a round, but incredibly didn't clean any tables, nor were any dishes picked up. We don't understand this. It's a small thing that would go so very far in creating truly satisfied customers.

My wife just took our mower in. The solution was so simple. Dan COULD have taken us for whatever he wanted, because we had no idea what was wrong. Instead, he explained what was going on, how to prevent it in the future, and some other good tips on the spot. In short he just earned our future business.

After driving by for months, we were looking for something different to eat at last night and finally stopped in. It's Italian, so it's not that kind of different, it's different, as in a place we hadn't been before. Given that, my wife had a dish (Chicken Aristocrat) that we had not had or heard of before. It was really really good. My dish was the shrimp diablo. It was also very good and just about perfectly spiced. The heat wasn't overbearing, it tasted great and my mouth was still tingling long after I finished. The kids had cheese sticks, spaghetti & meatballs, plus some chicken. All of which they enjoyed. We finished it off with the best creme brulee that we've ever had. All of this is largely due to a "real Italian", who likes to make his own sausage, pasta, meatballs, etc. It was really terrific and I can't wait to go back and try other dishes. My only criticism at the moment, is I wish there were more non-pasta dishes on the menu.

Back in May, 2013 we spoke with Adam and went over our options to replace our aging furnace and A/C. The options are varied and Adam did a great job of guiding us to a system that would satisfy us and that we could afford. The best thing: they were able to install the new system only two days later. After living with the system for 8 months...we love it! At the time, we opted to not install a humidifier at the time. Well, today (Jan 2014), we spoke with Adam again to go over our options. This time, they were able to to install the same day...,within an hour of us saying "yes". These things are great, but the best part is that if you chat with them, you get insight into how the business is run and you will likely be more impressed. Every person we've ever dealt with has been the kind of person you'd have over for dinner. They are just nice people. Now, something to be aware of. Their model is to guide you to solutions that will satisfy you, not to necessarily sell you a model 1234 of company A. Meaning, if you like to go do your research and find specific equipment, they won't necessarily give you a quote for the specific gear. They'd rather sell you something that will work, because what you researched may not. I did do some research before hand to start to understand our options, but my limited knowledge into the subject was quickly eclipsed by people who clearly deal with it day in and day out. The most important thing is to put some trust in them, and let them get a system that will help you and your family.

We were there on a recent Saturday night ( about 2-3 weeks ago). I watched two employees continually step over a water spill on the floor. Neither one cleaned it up and neither one told anybody else about it. On top of that, just to order, I get the kid who can't seem to utter the words "hello", or "how may I help you", or anything of the sort. He just gestured with a poor attitude to go with it. Never again, will I go to this location, even if it is closest to my home.
