Perl, by virtue of its own power and flexibility, it tends to engender bias
towards it for anyone who has had the opportunity to become reasonably proficient in it.  :)  After searching around a bit, I'm also at a loss for finding an even-handed comparisson.  I'd love to see what you find regarding this.

>Extra-credit question: Why should I use MySQL over Sybase?

The short of it:
   MySQL: Mind-bogglinlgy fast, not as full-featured
   Sybase (or most other commercial vendors, or even Postgres): More features, slower and more stable (you'll find many people who won't trust their data to anything but a fully transactional database).  If you need speed and don't need transactionality, MySQL is the way to go.
