At Confoo last week, I tried out a new presentation, called “Different MySQL Forks for Different Folks”. The idea was to explain the differences among all the forks – Drizzle, MariaDB, Percona and of course Oracle’s MySQL. But I did not just go into technical merit of each fork; I also explained the values of each company, as that can be a big decision in deciding what software to choose.
There are PDF slides and a video on youtube. But I wanted to put some of the links I used to gather information here, as an easy place for folks to come and click links if they like, or if they want to research on their own.
Hopefully the video gives a good overview; I know that many will learn a lot from this controversial video.
