One big issue with MySQL is that they continue to suffer from shipping products very late and with big quality issues.
I don't think this message is new. I just find it funny that EnterpriseDB is delivering it. They seem to be turning their attention from Oracle to MySQL. That must mean that MySQL is doing well in the marketplace. MySQL is certainly doing better in the marketing marketplace. They were featured in the Wall Street Journal and EnterpriseDB was featured on the blog of Curt Monash. They are also doing much better at trends.google.com.
Can MySQL survive the constant attacks from Bob at EnterpriseDB and Emma at Ingres? When will Sybase join in?
