MySQL does support transactions but only with certain table types namely
InnoDb and BDB tables. ..however it doesn't support stored procedures or
triggers.. yet

MySQL doesn't support transactions, I think. Unless your app depends on
transactions, you should be fine. I use MSSQL 2000 at work, 'cause my
purchasing app really requires a transactional database. But I'm playing
with MySQL, and for the little stuff I do much more often, I prefer it.
Especially at that price ;)
