  • It's even faster than Mysql. In my tests, queries in MyISAM tables are roughly twice as fast as the same queries in InnoDB tables, in the same MySQL server.

    Thus... what is Mysql good for? Mainly for "change once, read many many times" databases, IMO. Such as underlying CMS systems on websites.
    • Problem with "[Mysql is good for] ... CMS systems on websites" argurment is whoever uses MySQL would (try to) push|use|propogate elsewhere for any other db related work.

      (A rant.) Even more amazing thing is even when one knows that version 4.x is horrible (compared to 5.1, which is actually available), there would be no motivation to upgrade for applications might break. Version 4.x would keep on laughing & living due to installation of new applications (which would be deined the chance of using a better database system).

      Further, there would be lack of incentive, or actively being told so from higher ups not to, to actually do testing of old applications w/ better DBMS as the resources would be better spent on (mostly) adding new features or modifying existing ones (non-bug related). Something would break (not only applications but also the entity using the database) before the situtation would be fixed.
