Which database do you use?

A new survey is floating about to discover which databases you're using, and why.

Lewis Cunningham is running a survey to discover which databases people are using, and in which contexts. Lewis wanted to do an open survey, meaning not only would the results be published but all of the data behind the published results would be open, as well.

It's a noble effort. I'm not sure this blog is the best place to find a balanced demographic when it comes to open source, but presumably if he can get it published in DB2 and Oracle mailing lists, as well...?
