Not to take sides in a complex multi-sided argument with many factors to
consider, but from a practical getting-business-done perspective, my
company switched from the standard Ubuntu MySQL release to Percona

We needed to understand deep details on the performance of our database;
Percona gave us the insight we needed (and more).
