MariaDB and DHIS2

I remember once in these beloved place someone mentioned something about MariaDB to replace MySQL. Is there anyone who ever tried?

I know that many of us use PostgreSQL. Anyway, MariaDB will be replace MySQL soon at least for the Linux world as RedHat announced for the next version ( So I am looking forward test on it.

Yes, most DHIS installations under Linux are Ubuntu based and Canonical did not say nothing yet but much probably will move to MariaDB.
