Hey tomshardware,

I'm back with another question regarding software this time. I was wondering your guys' opinions on what you think the best database management software is for a "Ubuntu 10.4 Server Edition" server is. Some names I've come across are MS Access, Lyte 3, MySQL, and a few others. Anyone have any input?

Well, it really kinda depends on what you plan on using it for and what backends said applications can use/support. I traditionally use MySQL but that's mostly because all of the applications that I care about that use a DB support it (and it has a long history of being well-supported in Linux and other Unix-like environments)

Mysql indeed. PostgreSQL is another open source option that fits nicely on a linux system.

And you can't use MS access on Linux anyway :)
