Did you say M$.. yuck.. if you think you need something else then MySQL you
could take a look at PostgreSQL.. It's good, it's free and it doesn't have
M$ written all over it :-)
The subject sounds like commercial databases are better then OpenSource..
I don't think that's treu. You could find great solutions in OpenSource..
Like MySQL.. PostgreSQL and others.. I even know quite a few people on
several lists who kicked off commercial products and started using
opensource.. for various reasons.
If you look at the specs.. you will see MySQL performs very good.. also
with large databases.
Having your own dedicated server will help you to get better performing
Memory.. the more.. the better.. you can have to little but never to much
If you're currently experiencing performance problems I would assume a
dedicated server might help..
P.S. the subject is great flamebait..
