I've never used MariaDB but use MySQL all the time. I have no problem with Oracle.  I just use what works for me.  MySQL works great, lots of utilities to monitor it, manage, back up, restore... command-line for managing MySQL is simple also.

 I am working on a project that
 involves setting up a server for a 
 customer where they will need to access a database on an
 on-going basis 
 for various kinds of record-keeping, etc.  I have come
 to the conclusion 
 that a LAMP server will be the best solution for them (I
 won't bore you 
 with all the reasons why, but let's assume that is the way I
 will go).
 This will be the first time I will undertake a project quite
 like this, 
 so I have a few specific questions where I would like some
 especially the professionals out there who may have done
 jobs similar to 
 this for paying customers.
 Since the questions deal with different topics, I will send
 them out 
 separately so as not to muddy the waters by mixing things
 -->  QUESTION #2:
 Does anyone have any experience with MariaDb (vs
 MySQL)?  I understand 
 the rationale why some people feel uncomfortable with
 Oracle's role in 
 MySQL's development/maintenance and what that may mean for
 the future 
 'openness' of MySQL, but it seems that MariaDb (especially
 as an 
 _organization_) doesn't have that long of a track record, so
 I'm not yet 
 entirely comfortable hanging my hat on that product.
