LWN.net: New releases from MySQL descendants Drizzle and MariaDB

For years, MySQL has been the highest-profile open source relational database system, but with the Sun (and, later, Oracle) acquisition of MySQL's corporate parent MySQL AB, the development community has split in several directions. Now, a few years later, both of the leading community-driven forks of MySQL, Drizzle and MariaDB, have made important new releases.

...

While Drizzle is an attempt to hone the MySQL code base into a lean-and-mean database manager, MariaDB takes nearly the opposite approach, building a system with an array of high-end options well suited for enterprise usage.

I guess on a high level that's pretty accurate.
