MySQL became the most popular relational database on the planet by turning its weaknesses into strengths and successfully leveraging its ubiquity. It was, in that respect, one of the original guerrilla success stories in the open source world.
Odd similarities. MongoDB has indeed the potential of repeating parts of MySQL history, but I feel “MongoDB wants to be the new MySQL” sounds better.
