As they wanted it to die of course and sell more Oracle databases.

At the moment Oracle took over MySQL quite some years ago, i directly  
switched to a different database and
threw away MySQL.

The lastest incarnation of PostgresSQL is popular now as replacement  
of MySQL.

For serious database work - there is only Oracle of course.
No one should be interested in MySQL anymore by 2012.

Note MySQL never was even remotely serious as a database. As soon as  
you had its database go get out of RAM,
it became serious slow.

I bet back then that was ok for some website driven queries in your  
article store...
