I know a lot of people have asked me about what the best MySQL server
is. I've been using Percona 5.1 for quite a while, and love it.
However, I made the switch last night to MariaDB 5.5.
So far, it's worked great. I've had no problems whatsoever. It's only
been a day, though. I made the switch because of features. MariaDB has
the Sphinx full-text storage engine built-in, while I had to compile it
separately for Percona. This simplifies my server management. The
other reason I finally made the switch is that the Monty Group now
provides a CentOS repository for binaries.
I did a "SHOW PROCESSLIST" last night, and saw the Progress % column.
That alone made it worth it. :)
