MySQL Founder Urges Cautious Approach to MySQL 5.1

A candidate for the PR nightmare of the week award…

MySQL founder Monty Widenius criticized Version 5.1 of the MySQL open-source database in a blog post [titled “Oops, we did it again (MySQL 5.1 released as GA with crashing bugs)”] stating numerous bugs have not been fixed despite the fact that the database is now GA. Officials at Sun Microsystems responded that Widenius' opinion does not represent the entire user community and that enterprises should test any piece of software - MySQL or otherwise - before deploying it.
