Facebook, LiveJournal, Google, as well as the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation and the MediaWiki software that powers it.

This sentence seems a bit unclear to me. Is it implying that mediawiki always uses MySQL (which is not true i believe, I think it supports Postgress), or just generally does? Bawolff 02:50, 17 January 2008 (UTC)
