MySQL is Emerging in the Emerging Markets

A survey of more than 400 developers showed that MySQL is closing the lead Microsoft's SQL server has in emerging markets. More than 50 percent of developers in the emerging market countries said they are using Microsoft's SQL Server, but 46 percent said they are using MySQL.

This is another great news, after the results coming from the european SMBs survey. The adoption and usage of MySQL is still growing despite the economic downturn. Go MySQL!

Or because of the downturn!

Microsoft never made sense in "emerging markets" as it is deliberately and specifically hostile to local software industries.

@qu1j0t3 - You are probably right, downturn is stimulating the adoption of many open source products.
