These sorts of polls are _always_ prone to ballot stuffing.

When PostgreSQL "won" the O'Really one (intentional misspelling :-)),
that was a result of "stuffing."  Firebird's high showing on that one
was surely also due to ballot stuffing.

What is interesting about this one is that it demonstrates some sort
of change; in the past, I would have expected MySQL(tm) fans to stuff
in favor of that, as they are doubtless more numerous than MaxDB(tm)
fans.

The interesting question: Could this be the beginning of the
deprecation process of MySQL(tm)?
