Oh, it's quite obvious that Oracle is more _robust_ to data corruption
than MySQL.  And it is likely better than PostgreSQL.

This is a side effect of using transactions.

Note that the page I cite previously has several MySQL users saying
the MySQL is _much slower_ than an ACID, transaction-oriented RDBMS
(Oracle or PostgreSQL) when frequent updates are occurring with fairly
continuous read access, because MySQL has to lock the whole table to
get speed.
