in thread [OT] Why I don't use Mysql for new projects
I, as a non MySQL user, would like to hear some answers to another question: why is MySQL better than PostgreSQL? Or, better, are there applications/environments in which MySQL is preferable to PostgreSQL? And why?
I'm by no means an expert either, but this is what I read multiple times:
When you have data this doesn't change very often, and you make many simple queries, MySQL (with MyISAM backend) is blazingly fast.
