It will be interesting to see these replies.  I had the same question a few
years ago when my mariadb based mythtv could not update due to an issue
with a recent mariadb update.  We worked through it thanks to the help of
the fine folks on this mailing list. So the next time I rebuilt my backend
completely I used the default MySQL and I've been working successfully
since then.

But like you I see a lot of people prefer mariadb.
