MySQL is like Java.  Everyone should know it, if only because it's
ubiquitous.  Once you learn it, you can move on to something else if
you so desire.  A lot of large companies still prefer MySQL over
PostgreSQL in cases where you're not using just a single server
because setting up replication is a lot easier.
