I've heard it's actually not a bad database. Unfortunately quality
of implementation is secondary to other things like cost, marketing
and first-mover advantages. For example, MySQL is quite a poor
database engine compared to say, PostgreSQL!


MS-SQL is probably better than MySQL, but I doubt it will be
unseating MySQL as the most popular database on Linux…
