It was a bit harsh, sorry about that but I was struggling for a way to
express myself without swearing. Thanks for taking it better than I
Steve's issue was with a complex query joining 8 tables (or
thereabouts). Had you said that you had done something similar on MySQL
5 then I would take it as an informed opinion on the subject. Sure 5 is
an improvement on the previous versions but that does not mean that it
addresses Steve's issue sufficiently.
As for Google. Are they doing complex queries joining 8 tables and what
sort of performance are they getting or are we just assuming that
anything they touch is blessed?
