I was wondering what type of MySQL server the community uses the most
The default mysql-server
Which claims to be faster than MySQL Enterprise Edition
And supports more database types,
Please post your recommendations.
My post tracker:
I've been using mysql from long time and never even tried maria-db ( small-scale applications probably ) maybe never required need to upgrade, also possibility because it's already installed in most of the linux OS Distributions
I'm currently using MariaDB for my upcoming project, I used MySQL so much time, but I guess it's time to change, MariaDB is just the updated version of MySQL by the same developers so why use the outdated MySQL?
In the past I used the original MySQL, but since the last few years I use MariaDB mostly.
Nobody use PostgreSQL, MongoDB or Microsoft's SQL server?

I personally use both. MySQL where it is available by default because I'm too lazy to install repo just to install MariaDB (most of the time with exceptions) if I know that MySQL serves well enough for what I need and of course MariaDB where it is available by default.
Sometimes I need another database server than installed by default. In that I do the extra work and do some research and grab the best repository and install plus configure MariaDB or whatever the other database server is for my project.
@Jayce MySQL is by Oracle which is a commerical company with commercial goals in mind. They are making MySQL non free. MariaDB has been created by a different team and is maintained by other people. It supports many (not all!) MySQL and more are added. MariaDB =/= MySQL though! If you think so you are so so wrong.
With the steps that Oracle is going I'm switching to MariaDB where I can though. Oracle pretty much destroys everything they accquired and that was free and great once.
I use the default MySQL stock for a my websites needs. Works like a charm!

I know this thread is about mysql/mariadb, but i will just say it.
I use postgres, just because i already know how to use it, just that.
I've worked with both, but I liked postgres than mysql, just because it's simpler.
