Open Source databases bloom

Author: JT Smith

ComputerWorld: "Databases were once the forgotten
stepchild of the open-source family. Companies like Red Hat
Inc. included database software with their Linux distribution
disks, but the main focus was on the operating system, the
kernel and the graphical interface. A database was just
another add-on, like a Minesweeper clone. But now,
companies and users are scrambling to realize the value
locked up in quality, open-source database software."
