That is so true it that I can¹t help but +1 it. Admittedly, older versions
of MySQL aren¹t as rich in features as other databases, but most users
understand the concept of 'keys' and normalization because they had to do
some work to set it up rather than use a wizard.

I've had M$SQL users give me the eye roll when they hear that I work in
MySQL, then after reviewing their work I find that they haven't even
normalized their database, made use of foreign keys, indexes or anything
else that would make their 'database' something more then a glorified
