We don't want a beta version of MySQL
The excuses coming from Sun re: a beta version released as "GA" are sad and pathetic.
I for one require a database without 'issues'.
MySQL creator Michael “Monty” Widenius has gone on a noisy rant about last week’s release of MySQL 5.1 because Sun Microsystems has unleashed the database even though it still contains “fatal bugs”.
