    MySQL Performance

    When is MySQL going to publish TPC-C benchmark results so we can see how they really compare to MS SQL Server and Oracle and others?

    Be careful not to fall into traps...

    Benchmarks can be bribed/bought off, and messed with to screw results.

    Thats prob. why they avoid them.... the Micro$haft empire has more cash than MySQL ever had.

    I also never heard or seen of such reports of the MySQL db being that slow... odds are they didn't design the system propperly. You'd be surprised how a DB design can slow your system down big time... and have nothing to do with the engine itself... it could also be the hardware... or the internet connection.

    Too many variables to list.

    With the control you have in Linux/Unix systems... ill stick with MySQL...

    Can't get that kind of control in windoze.
