Hi :)
MariaDb is to MySql as LibreOffice is to OpenOffice except that MySql is
still owned by Oracle.

Not quite. LibreOffice is going in the direction of being completely
independent of OpenOffice, while MariaDb remains parasitic on MySQL, as
shown by the recent incorporation of MySQL 5.5 into MariaDb. Also, MariaDb
is available on a much more limited spectrum of target servers (e.g., no
OS-X binaries).
