I'm upgrading a Mysql 5.7 server and have the choice to move to Mysql 8 or MariaDB 10.3.
The by far most important function in this database server is InnoDB fulltext search which I haven't found compared in the usual Mysql vs MariaDB comparisons.
What are the pros and cons of each? Does one of them have an edge in fulltext searching?
What about even newer versions of each?
