    “the world's most popular open-source SQL database”

    I would say that honour belongs to SQLite. Consider that a copy is included with every Android device ever shipped, and also every Apple phone and tablet. So almost certainly there is a copy in your pocket or purse right now.

    Certainly, MySQL is the most popular for server-specific applications. But even on “big” machines, you might still find uses for SQLite here and there—it’s that versatile.

    Oh, and you can drop the “open-source” qualifier, and the above would still be true.

    Re: “the world's most popular open-source SQL database”

    Yeah I think it's probably true that in sheer volume of data throughput, or in terms of where the most important/valuable data in the world stores and passes through, MySQL (particularly if you include MariaDB, which IMHO people should be running instead) is the most popular database software in existence right now, while in sheer number of unique instances SQLite is probably the holder of the crown.

    (Folks will tell ya that PostgreSQL is the best one out there, and they may well be right; I don't personally know, I inherited a MySQL setup at my work, and have just kept that the same, although I've upgraded/migrated to MariaDB specifically at this point. Meanwhile, the actual software product we sell relies on at its core---you guessed it---SQLite.)
