UPDATE - MySQL plugs open source database at user show

MySQL AB threw its first ever user conference recently in San Jose, California, promoting its open source database as a viable, more affordable alternative to products from Oracle Corp., IBM Corp. and the other top database vendors.

It claims to have 4,000 paying customers, including such names as Google Inc., Yahoo Inc. and Cisco Systems Inc., which has embedded MySQL in some of its networking products.
