I have no experience with PostgreSQL - although, from what I've heard
it's quite capable - but not easy to get going on Windows.
One other open source RDBMS would be Firebird - see www.firebirdsql.org
Especially the newer release (1.5). Don't get fooled by that version
it's a fork of the Borland InterBase code, which has been around for
I'm looking forward to MySQL5 to see what's new and how it's
As for what engine would be the best for you - it all depends on what
going to do. For example, I frequently use triggers and check
my database applications, with MySQL, I can't do this.
