[thelist] Technology change

Hi Stéphane,

Never had any problems with stability on any of my sites,
(I don't have transactions enabled)
its faster,  simpler and a lot cheaper than MS SQL,  with
good support and documentation from MySQL.com.

The real benefit of MS SQL is that most hosts will provide
win boxes and MS SQL,  but rarely Windows and MySQL.

I use both,  but prefer MySQL for Web stuff.

:) Ant.

Although I'm more and more cautious with professing MySQL on a Windows box.
On my machine it sure is unstable (and from what I hear with friends it's
the same on theirs).

Making a transition from Access to MS SQL Server can also be an alternative
and fits in this "build on your knowledge" approach.

My two cents of euros.
