Meh. +1 to kill MySQL for MariaDB. It's got a much better future. I
see it more like a libc changeover. Who cares, it's got the same
interface. We only have things to gain (better upstream, upstream
commited to real f/oss, new features, etc.)
I don't really agree here. If you want a drop-in replacement from
we should switch to percona server. MariaDB is way more intrusive (new
DB engine,...) than percona.
Percona Server does not solve the problem we have.
Percona follows Oracle's releases with their excellent patches. It is
certainly an improvement for many workloads, and I don't want to down
play the excellent work Percona puts into Percona Server. However,
they're in the same boat as Debian, downstream from an increasingly
closed and uncooperative upstream.
