MySQL operates on a range of system platforms, which include Linux, Microsoft Windows, OpenBSD, Symbian, Solaris, etc. MySQL is built on C and C++ with a parser generator developed with Yacc. Yacc is an alternative complier that generates a parser to add sense to the source code. In April 2009, on the official website of MуSQL appeared MySQL 5.1 version in two variations: the open source MySQL and the commercial database version. As for MySQL 5.5, it provides an identical code base and deploys a cross-platform support, updatable views, separate storage engines for storing data, read speed, etc. About technical features and database structure you can read more here.
