Both MySQL and PostgreSQL is used all over the Internet. Of course if
you mean the classical SME with only a few staff and not exposed to the
influences of the Internet then MS Access is probably king.
Both "free" databases and commercial ones are getting Linux into
Support for MySQL on their mailing list is excellent and if you pay a
paltry £200 or so for email support their main developers will give your
queries priority on support at mysql.com
Pay more, up to about $5,000 p/a (I think) and they'll login to your box
remotely and fix your problem for you, on-site, or fly someone out to
fix the problem. More info at http://www.mysql.com/
Recently, commercial support for PostgreSQL has become available.. can't
remember the company name.
Of course, you'll also find plenty of mysql/postgresql talent on
