It's official. In the last few days both Fedora & openSUSE have decided to replace Oracle's MySQL with MariaDB as their default DBMSs. Linux, Apache, MariaDB, Perl/PHP/Python (LAMP) anyone?

- looks like a trend developing?
note to self: maybe time to do a book on Maria.Feb 1, 2013
- - that would be awesome!Feb 1, 2013
- I see this as the start of a major, far-reaching change. I mean, LAMP & WAMP developers have been using MySQL for well over a decade now. MariaDB is, as far as I've been able to tell on my small-time servers, a true drop-in replacement. but there's always some differences. So, yes, I can certainly see the need for a book on MariaDB.Feb 1, 2013
- I've yet to use MariaDB... I'm just afraid it'll fork too far and become incompatible with MySQL which would not be good.Feb 1, 2013
- I'd like to adopt MariaDB before's forking prediction comes to pass. That being said, if I had the time to play with databases at the moment, I'd want to tinker with Mongo, and Riak. I'm not a noSQL fanboy, but I would like to explore their potential, whereas SQL isn't as interesting, perhaps because I have real world uses for it.Feb 1, 2013
- I didn't read the article, but also chakra is switching to mariadbFeb 1, 2013
- I wish developers would come up with better names. No matter how good this db may be, many non-tech CEO's are not gonna want to run their infrastructure on something called MariaDB or Drizzle? wtf?Feb 1, 2013
