... the most common database used in Linux

Hi folks! What would be the most common database used in Linux Debian?
I have an app that uses MS-Access as its database. The reason I chose
Access was because it is the most common Database in the MSWin World.
I would like to know if the is one in Linux Debian's Data Base?

Thanks folks!

Wrong newsgroup. This group deals with C++ Language questions.
Try one of these:

comp.os.linux.development.apps
comp.os.linux.development.system

MS Access is specific to MS Windows.

MySQL and Postgres are two popular Open Source Unix/Linux
databases that come to mind. Both are also available (free)
for MS Windows.

Two databases cover everything you need:

MySQL - for applications that need strong multi-user support. (free for
open-source apps, commercial devs have small fee)

SQLite - for high-speed desktop-style applications that only need
single-user databases. (100% free)
