Everybody has given Angus really great advice in this previous thread and I have learned a lot too. I hope no one mines the fork but I am in the exact same situation as Angus. If anyone could spare a bit of time regarding application infrastructure I would really appreciate it.

I know there are lots of databases out there and PostgreSQL is held in high regard but the overwhelming majority of examples seem to use MySQL. Considering that Oracle has bought Sun, do you think it is still wise to use it for new applications? Oracle does not have much "street cred" in open source circles, maybe they'll cause trouble later and MySQL was already forking was it not? I'd like to use the same DB for a few years.

I am attracted to building an application from scratch but I will never get an object relational mapper to work without a framework. If I go the scratch route, I'd better get my database done right(as was advised in the previous thread!)and getting that right probably starts with choosing the right DB.

Any thoughts?-Patrick
