Linux Magazine Editors Choice Award to MySQL Again
10 Sep 2001
For the second year in a row, the editors of Linux Magazine picked
MySQL as the top Linux database. This is the explanation of the
editors as quoted from the september issue of Linux Magazine:
"Ask any DBA to give you a short list of the best databases that are
available for Linux, and it's guaranteed that MySQL will make the
cut. In fact, the majority of Linux distributions come with MySQL as
an install option. MySQL makes it a snap to use the power and
flexibility of SQL on Linux and other platforms, while offering an
excellent option for those companies and individuals that don't want
to pay high license fees to commercial database vendors.
If you are a part of an organization that requires commercial support
and training contracts, these are now available for MySQL from a
number of third parties. And of course, it's super to easy to
integrate with PHP and other Web application development environments
Especially when you consider the price ($zero), MySQL is a pretty hard
deal to pass up. If you or your company are looking for a free
alternative to the comparatively expensive commercial databases that
are currently available, MySQL is the one to beat."
