in reply to [OT] Why I don't use Mysql for new projects

MySQL sucks! But then so does PostgreSQL and Oracle and Access. I have not played much with Firebird, SQLServer, Sybase, Impress, or DB2, but I am pretty sure that each of them suck too -- along with every other database in the world.

Every database sucks in its own way. A large part of working with databases is dealing with the parts that do not work the way you want them to :)

    If relational integrity is by far and away the #1 concern, which open source DB should one choose? Firebird or PG?

    I get the impression that MySQL is designed and used more as a data storage system than as relational model system. Correct?

      No, not correct. MySQL supports the same data integrity features as other databases.
