Oracle XE, Mysql or Postgresql ?

With the Oracle XE, the purchase of InnoDB and the integration to PHP, Oracle surly wishes to kill Mysql, But we can't know when Oracle will stop Oracle XE development or change the license, because of that I think it will be better to go with postgresql than with Oracle XE (Unless you know that you are going to upgrade to oracle enterprise in the future) or mysql. From now Postgresql should be the default for a simple free database like what mysql was untill now. Postgresql has no company behind it that some other company can buy and destroy, it is an open community developed database, a very good database and now it's also got the commercial release (EnterpriseDB).

Oded.
