"I have found MySQL and all of the tools that come with it, form the best database for all-round use available in the world today. New features as they come on line are really additional bonuses that help in administration but the performance of MySQL is nothing short of amazing to say the least. However, it is the extremely high level of professionalism from MySQL Customer Support that has made MySQL my only choice in RDB's. The average time from lodging an issue and getting a resolution is less than an hour."
