I thought MongoDB is ACID compliant since 4.0?

It barely is. 1-minute transaction limits make them useless for a lot of workloads. I have scripts which need up to 10 minutes to complete and heard of scripts which take days and require ACIDity. Time limits on transactions shouldn’t be there.

But suppose that it has real transactions. We’re talking about a database which could not guarantee that when it says that something has been saved, that it was actually saved until the 4th major release. Marketing over product.
