At the recent OSGR event (yes, that’s Open Source Goat Rodeo), Zack from MySQL gave everyone a pair MySQL boxer shorts. These shorts, much like open source software, provided most of the functionality you’d want; elasticated waist, 2 leg holes, privacy. However, I noticed that there was no hole, you know… for frontal access. I was told that the hole was available in the enterprise version, but I could look to the community to see if they had already created a hole. Of course I could always create my own hole, but then I’d have to maintain it.
Personally, I would always go for the enterprise version since I like good support from my underwear.
Left to our own devices we deployed the product in ways it wasn't designed for, we really should have gotten help from the vendor.
