@phenomlab Naw, my op was neutral presentation of selected bits of sspl drama. My follow up post, otoh, does reveal some colour.
The devil is indeed in the details. And the details warrant discussion. Or… not??
Quite relevant, indeed, I would think to the NodeBB crowd, as mongodb is presetnly very much the preferred, trusted and true, nodebb db backend. Although… I will be testing the PostgreSQL stuff again here shortly. In no small part because of a distrust of the folks at mongo. Ditto now Elastic. Although we pretty much always distrusted them. Crippled Open Source. Go figure.
PostgreSQL has been around for a long time. Licensed all that while under the favorable BSD license. What is not to like? Well, in some use cases/work loads, nosql is not just a latest and greatest hipster marketing thang…
So we shall soon see what we shall see on that one.
