I don't want to be the pessimist, but I think a lot of people are moving to
MySQL now that its finally getting out of the "baby database" world, and I
think that SQL Server Express is taking a huge chunk of people as well, and
I think with SQL Server Everywhere coming that will take another chunk....

I never understood why FB didn't do better over MySQL. MySQL was such an
incredibly basic and IMO crippled DB.
