A new survey claims that MySQL usage is going to decline over the next few years while PostgreSQL, MariaDB, and Oracle DB grow their user base. The 451 Group recently polled their CAOS open source community members and asked them to weigh in on the Oracle/MySQL controversy and share their thoughts on current database usage. In the study, there is no 51% majority on any one outcome for MySQL. What do you think Oracle should do with MySQL?
