Let the flaming begin!! No need for flames. I think the two are converging. PostgreSQL started out with a focus on being full-featured and as powerful as Oracle. MySQL started out with a focus on being fast and small. Today, PostgreSQL is as full-featured as ever, and guess what... it's becoming faster too. MySQL is still fast, but it's adding more and more features. They are approaching the asme point... they just started on different ends of the spectrum. Five years from now, IMO, there'll be little if any difference.
