I don't remember where it was, but there was a really interesting write 
up on why mysql seems to be so popular.

Executive Summary:
MySQL is popular on the web because it's more like MSFT Access than many 
of the alternatives.  Low maintenance, very simple to administrate, 
decent for a single user/application.

I have no idea where I'm going with this and don't really plan to, but I 
just thought it was interesting.
