wow, are you sure you're reading the licences correctly?
mysql merely requires that if your code is NON open source you must purchase
one licence per server, £340 is peanuts, especially when you're selling to a
corporate market that EXPECTS to pay licences (as a mark of "pukka" goods if
nothing else) last I checked sql server with 5 clients was over a grand....
pushing postgresql which is inextricably tied into the BSD licence, even if it
is bloody free, is the sort of thing that scares the crap out of
my 2p anyway....
