    SQL and Linux

    Does anyone know of a good SQL server for Linux? Like something with a good query program and one that will interface with windows?

    mysql isn't a real relational database server (the new versions may be -- but 3.23 certainly isn't). it's just a fast file system with no support for transactions or row-level locking...

    it's fine if you want something fast, easy to use, and most importantly, it's NOT going to be worked hard by multiple users. Postgresql is the real deal, but the learning curve is a tad steeper.

    I would see what I could get out of mysql, or else use Oracle.

    what? relational data base just means the database handles data that is used for a seperate application.
