Drizzle Steals MySQL thunder


The buzzword on MySQL blogs is drizzle, a lightweight fork of the MySQL database, initiated by Brian Aker and quickly joined by a dozen developers.

The project has stirred the interest of the community, it has the blessing of Sun R&D and paves the way for a different and more dynamic model of participation. While everyone was waiting for the announcement of MySQL 5.1 release, Brian got a fair share of the crowd's attention at OSCON, by announcing the birth of this new project.

The reactions so far are quite positive. Drizzle met the enthusiasm of the OSCON crowd and it has even created a fairy tale. What more should you ask for?
