    At home, I mostly use InterBase because it comes free with Delphi Professional and is easily good enough for my demands. I also have SyBase at home, but it's a bit resource intense, so I only use it when I have a good reason. The job before last was at a SyBase house.

    Oracle at work. MySQL or PostGreSQL for side projects (cost is always a factor).

    I use MySQL because its easy to set up, use, interact with and edit. And because its free and integrates with (oh hell no... please...) php for my webpages.

    MySQL is the next biggest thing (1rst is Access I think, either that or SQL).

    MySQL is by far one of the best. Its free, and powerful. Both work and play, we bet you'll say, mysql is best for what you pay =P

    Catchy tune. .

    I think MySQL itself is easier than any other DB out there. In access connections are hard to remember, where as in php you just do this:

    PHP Code:
    $username "";
    $password "";
    $host          "";

    mysql_connect($host$username$password); 
    If it's running off of your computer, you might just need the host, and username.

    Actually in terms of functionality and advanced features (stored procedures, triggers, table inheritance etc.) PostgreSQL is much better than MySQL. It also provides SQL92/SQL99 language support. Yes, it's open source as well.

    Yes but i have never got postgre to work with my stuff. (yes this is a personal issue, on a freebsd box. it has slightly left me soured toward postgre and its possibly unfair.) Ease of instaliation, use, implimentation and upgradability is just as important as advanced features. Besides, if your running a mission critical app that needs those ultra-advanced features, your probablly going to be using something that is considered more commercially secure. (not that its more or less secure, but more acceptable. There is wide spread mistrust of free software in businesses, unfortunately, and perception of management is reality in business)

    For ASP, I use Access for developing (on my box) and SQL Server when deployed.

    For PHP, I'm using MySQL for both development and deployment.

    I'd love to get my hands on some Oracle, though. Not sure if I'd know how to turn it on.
