Not sure what you mean by "file based".  Seems perfectly fair to me if I'm comparing using SQLite and MySQL on my local computer.  I'm not recommending one above the other, just pointing out what I've read.  As with any software, you should use what works best for your application.

I haven't got round to benchmarks yet (and probably won't), but I've read several things on the web that suggest SQLite is much faster than mySQL.  Of course if SQLite is missing a feature you need, doesn't matter how much faster it is!
