    Mariadb, and other mysql spinoffs, have one key advantage over mysql....not owned by Oracle.

    Aka...

    MariaDB is not trying to keep mysql a technology backwater to protect proprietary Oracle db offerings. Its also not in bed with the NSA. Anyone that uses any Oracle products (including oracle implementation of Java), the same company that got its start selling software to the CIA, is dumb as a rock if they think they are getting security.

    The first item from your link:

    He tries to insert 99999999999999 into a 32 bit int field, what he gets is 2147483647 stored as the value.

    What do you suppose would happen in C/C++ if you have a 32 bit int, and you add 99999999999999 to it? Are you going to curse C/C++ for allowing the int to overflow?

    Other databases (tested: Firebird 1.5rc4, Oracle 8.1.7 and PostgreSQL 7.4) raised errors with the same data.

    Which has been available for almost a decade.

    You're like a dog with a bone. Last time I worked with MySQL was 5.0.1, and it was letting people insert ASCII strings into integer fields, and every time people expressed concerns, all you saw was rhetoric about how that should have been dealt with at the application layer. Which is fine if you're setting up a web forum, but not when you're organizing an enterprise that spans the world and has numerous applications accessing it, where one junior programmers mistake can hose your whole fucking enterprise. No client has mandated that I MUST use it since, therefore, I haven't used it since, and asked a serious question.

    The history of MySQL was very well summed up in an earlier post: "ACID is hard, therefore we don't do it."

    Not just me... most professionals know this and accept it and know that not every tool fits every scenario. Don't know what YOUR fucking problem is.

    I'd always thought MySQL was NoSQL to begin with. "Datatypes? Integrity? What geezer wants those! LOL! We're webscale!"

    (I love NoSQL DBs like Cassandra for the right applications. I haven't ever found an application for which I'd love MySQL.)
