To answer the maria question:

Yes it is a drop in replacement.

However, the bulk of the development is still going to be done by mysql/oracle. Even they have admitted that. It has some cool improvements, xtradb over innodb, aria over myisam. Switching to use them may make sense in some situations, but many people

This isn't very good news in case Oracle decides to change the license one day.

I think the best and safest thing to do if you use MySQL is to switch to PostgreSQL.
