I used both under Fedora. So far, I don't see a major difference, though it was a pain getting the MariaDB *client* to connect to a MySQL *server*, despite claims that it could handle it perfectly fine.

Subject: [SATLUG] LAMP Server Question #2
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 opinions,
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 together.
--> 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. Thoughts?
