Mysql vs Oracle

Hello Experts,
Our customer needs to distribute a small app to several distant locations....
Now this app will have a database...
1) Which is the best database to distribute many times (like little less than a hundred )
2) Is it ok to consider Oracle and MySQL as the top databases in the world for medium and small apps for distribution ?
3) which database would you suggest for easy remote instalation and implementation as well as maintenace?

regards,
MySQL ServerDatabasesVisual Basic ClassicOracle Database

You can't just distribute oracle.  It's a licensed DB.

Ah thanks.  Didn't realize that existed.

What OS is this for?  That's relevant to the discussion.

Yes, the question what was cost effective and if the target is Windows then there's probably a value in considering SQL Server.

Indeed, as sql server express version also exists.
Like oracle and mysql, the "free" versions come with limitations that need to be clearly studied before choosing

Hi thank you for your answers,
I am seeing the main limitations for Oracle XE are

11GB of data and 1 GB Ram.... no hard limit for user connections..
Is there any other important limitation?
Thank you

Any os oracle supports
BUT not any architecture ;-) E.g. ARM based systems like Raspberry devices
