no. it doesn't. it talks about how great MaxDB is and how large
enterprises use it, and how it lowers the TCO and blah blah blah. but it
doesn't answer the questions i asked. is MaxDB a completely separate
install or does it require that MySQL be installed first? similarly can
you have both MaxDB and MySQL on the same computer? and again, if MaxDB
is so great, why is MySQL still being developed? it would appear that
MaxDB is already at the point where MySQL is headed, so why not just
stop development work on MySQL?
