One thing that wasn't mentioned is MySQL requires a license (approx $500) 
if you distribute non-gpl applications, like commercial applications or 
applications where you're not providing the source code. PostgreSQL 
applicatoins can be distributed for free. If you are using MySQL on a 
webserver then the license isn't required because you're not distributing 
it. But if you are distributing applications then the $500 might make a 
difference to your bottom line.
