A question for anyone running MySQL databases (on linux, or systems similar
to linux). Anyone know how well mysql handles tables with very large amounts
of entries? (Between 50 and 100 million entries). I'm told from one source
that
postgresql handles this load better, and then from other sources that mysql
handles
fine. Just wondering if anyone has had experience with this and if theres
anything
to look out for when dealing with such a large database?

Thanks,
Erik Fears
