Databases "Within the past two years, Oracle, IBM and Microsoft have all released freely available versions of their flagship database servers, a move that would have been unheard of just a few years ago. While their respective representatives would argue the move was made in order to better accommodate the needs of all users, it's fairly clear that continued pressure from open source alternatives such as MySQL and PostgreSQL have caused these database juggernauts to rethink their strategies within this increasingly competitive market."

The article didn't use the acronym LAMP, but it talked around it. It is usually defined as
Linux/Apache/MySQL/(Perl,PHP,Python).
Of course that leaves PostgreSQL out in the cold, so I was amused to find that they define it on their web site as
Linux/Apache/Middleware(Perl,PHP,Python,Ruby)/PostgreSQL,
which not only brings PostgreSQL back into the fold, but Ruby as well.

Hey, "Middleware", could mean java/C/tuxedo/SOAP too.
