    What database backend is recommended for production use depends on what use you will make of it; in some cases MyISAM is better, in others InnoDB (or XtraDB or Aria) and there are also some rather specialized DB backends for MySQL.

      Considering how the MYISAM engine does not support the creation of foreign keys I find it rather hard to believe how anyone can even recommend its use for anything today.

      Unless you are telling me that your entire database consists of only one large flattened relation.

      Also doesn't explain why MYSQL defaults to MyISAM and non-case sensitivity in Windows but InnoDB and case-sensitivity in Unix.

        I don't write extreme SQL queries but I do SysAdmin and coding on MySQL and MariaDB from more than 10 years
        on tens of servers, most under heavy load.
        Had hundreds of power outages and hard drives failures, repairing and auto-repairing MyISAM tables,
        (InnoDB and XtraDB do not need repair)
        never lost a bit.

          If MySQL is so shitty why did Sun bought it?

          Anyway it's gonna be interesting seeing which one will be faster: the open source mariaDB or the Oracle MySQL? My money is on Oracle. It's not like their the best database developer in the world or anything.
          If Windows is so shitty then why is everybody using it?

          If Windows is so shitty why Nokia started using it exclusively?

          Unfortunately we don't live in a world where best technical solutions dominate the market... Good marketing is few orders of magnitude more important.
