What do you think about MariaDB

    I recently read about MariaDB, that is a free alternative of mysql, totally compatible.
    but i think that it is so new.
    What do you think about this new option??
    they say that mariadb is better, and its the same creator

    Its alright, but it is not entirely compatible with all systems as it claims. But, I would recommend checking it out tho.

    Shows some of the points. What are you going to use it for? I probably wouldn't jump to it for production use or anything. What problems have you had with mysql?

    Stick with MySQL, the masses use it, don't make your life harder unless this makes it easier.

    I don't see the need to use MariaDB if we already have mySQL , It's like opening a hamburger restaurant next to a Mc Donalds.

    MariaDB is a community-developed branch of the MySQL database, the impetus being the community maintenance of its free status under GPL, as opposed to any uncertainty of MySQL license status under its current ownership by Oracle.

    MariaDB is based on MySQL and is available under the terms of the GPL v2 license.It's developed by the MariaDB community with Monty Program Ab as its main steward.MariaDB is kept up to date with the latest MySQL release from the same branch.
    In most respects MariaDB will work exactly as MySQL: all commands, interfaces, libraries and APIs that exist in MySQL also exist in MariaDB. There is no need to convert databases to switch to MariaDB. MariaDB is a true drop in replacement of MySQL! Additionally, MariaDB has a lot of nice new features that you can take advantage of.
