    And what is worse - mySQL also does not support transactions.

    To make errors is human. But to make million errors per second, you need a computer.

    Actually the NuSphere MySQL DB does have ACID transactions, row level locking, and replication. Sorry no stored procedures and even worse it violates the GPL.

    MySQL

    It's proabably the best simple databse for handling data which doesn't change much, but needs complex processing - like datasets from epidemiolgical studies, which is what I do. :-)

    Oracle

    What can I say? Does almost everything. On the other hand it's not cheap, and it needs a lot of skill to make it work well. ;-/
