Comments: I am a developer of systems under web environment, and in many opportunities I use the MySQL database manager, it is a fundamental tool in my team for a long time.

Pros: MySQL is open source software that allows anyone to use it and modify it. Anyone can download the MySQL source code and use it without paying. Anyone interested can study the source code and adjust it to their needs. MySQl is a relational, multi-threaded and multi-user database system with more than six million installations and is widely used in web applications, such as Drupal or phpBB, on platforms (Linux / Windows-Apache-MySQL-PHP / Perl / Python) Its popularity as a web application is mostly related to PHP, which usually appears in combination with MySQL. This database manager is one of the best in terms of performance since the speed of opreciones is very good. You can be executed in low-resource machines since the consumption of requirements for its execution is very low. It supports several opertative systems and is very easy to install and configure. There are a number of good quality software tools that provide management and development workspace functions. MySQL Workbench and TOAD for MySQL are good examples. Being open source there is a large amount of help on the Internet and this should help to reduce, in a production environment, incident handling times. Also, a lot of information so that your development team can read.

Cons: A large percentage of MySQL utilities are not documented. The support for triggers is basic so there are certain limitations in what can be done with them. By handling referential integrity with non-transactional MyISAM tables.
It does not treat them differently from the rest of the fields.
Privileges for a table are not automatically deleted when a table is deleted. A REVOKE command must be explicitly used to remove privileges from a table.

Comments: MySQL is awesome!

Pros: MySQL has earned an outstanding reputation, and now is the DB that powers over a quarter of the entire internet. Consider the fact that WordPress runs on MySQL and it powers 28% of the entire internet, yet there are loads of other sites using it. MySQL is nothing to trifle with, and unless you want MS SQL or you're in need of a NoSQL DB like MongoDB, you'll want the quality and full-featured MySQL. Oh, and if you plan to manage your DB visually, MySQL Workbench is best for that.

Cons: While I understand the technical reasons why it must be so (different algorithms), I wish we could just use MyISAM and InnoDB all in one engine for optimization. Maybe there's some workaround. It's nothing wrong with MySQL, it's just a small drawback.
