MySQL *still* ahead of MariaDB?
"PostgreSQL is the fourth most popular database on ranking system DB Engines, behind Oracle, MySQL, and Microsoft's SQL Server. It soars well above MariaDB, which sits in the 13th spot."
That's kinda worrying that MySQL is allegedly still far ahead of MariaDB in terms of usage, given that most (all?) major Linux distros transitioned to MariaDB from MySQL as their preferred system a good few years ago now, and therefore you would assume that most "MySQL" databases are actually now running under MariaDB instead.
Either there are a lot of legacy sites out there just gathering dust (or whose sysadmins have bought in to MySQL under Oracle (gulp), and are too terrified to try to change anything), or these "DB Engines" people, whoever they might be, are fluffing up their own 'statistics' with an inflated sense of self-importance (I mean, how would you know what DB system a site is running; they normally shouldn't be peekable from the outside world? (And, of course, not every database system is web-facing anyway.))
