What is Your Favorite Database?

I have been hearing so many different answers to questions of favorite database. I would like to know what is favorite database of readers. I encourage all of you to participate in this poll. It is very quick poll and takes a second.

A gift of the USB drive will be provided to user who will also add comment discussing this subject matter. I encourage to send emails to your friends to participate in the poll. I am hopping this poll becomes landmark poll for people who are finding answers to favorite database.

    SQL server is the way to go.
    From cost, to ease of install, to ease of development, to support….it beats Oracle hand down.

    Now, from what I know, large databases (that most of us do not work on, such as Financal Systems or Major ERP systems) Oracle is more efficient.

    We are working on a Healthcare software/service startup and our choice was clearly SQL Server. Because it was cheaper, more compatible (I think) to web applications and certainly a lot cheaper to support on the long run.

    Have a great day

    p.s. Pinal, you are da man. I absolutely love your blogs. Very informative. Cheers mate!

  • Sql server because of its flexibility and simplicity.
