Hey!
Lets start with a poll to judge what else other than MySQL is used with PHP...

I work heavily with MSSQL at my office

Whats the point of so many different databases? Aren't they all just databases?

Virtuoso: noup..they are not the same..

First of all: different databases have different speed of processing queries, different databases have also different security level.

there are many many many differences..

for instance: what database engines would you use for:
*. Webshop
*. Banking system
*. Project management

okej... now reply there... i think no one knows what to say :P

Here are the correct answers:
Webshop (in most cases) and Project management systems would be using MySQL (other database engines are also possible to use)
Banking system: Oracle and ONLY oracle
