Subject: [gentoo-user] MySQL > MariaDB - is it time?
Date: Thu, 01 Mar 2012 20:48:29
1 Hi all,
3 I just came across this thread today on the MariaDB discuss list about
4 the poor stewardship of Oracle with respect to MySQL (and it references
5 Oracle's track record of poor handling of the FLOSS projects it
6 inherited when it bought Sun):
10 In it is discussed - among many other things including lots of good
11 reason *why* - the possibility of replacing MySQL with MariaDB in
12 anticipation of Oracle's current poor stewardship of MySQL...
14 My question is - shouldn't gentoo be considering this move as well?
17 I've been seriously considering this for my own servers for some time,
18 and after reading this, I think it is time to stop thinking about it and
19 just do it, but I'm a bit nervous - ianap, and don't want to shoot
20 myself in the foot in the process.
22 Anyone here ever done the switch want to share their experience?
