Subject:mysql vs postgresql -- is this list accurate?
View as plain text  
  no, i don't want to start a flame war, i just want some feedback on
a current list of mysql "drawbacks" WRT postgresql.

  in the context of a fully open-source, java based ECM product, there
is a FAQ entry that summarizes why the developers would prefer their
users to use postgresql as opposed to mysql:

http://www.nuxeo.org/xwiki/bin/view/FAQ/WhyAvoidMySQL

  i'm not advocating one way or the other, i just want to make sure
that list is accurate and i'm not enough of an expert to be able to
judge the entire list.

  if anyone wants to tell me whether any of those entries are no
longer relevant, or are overblown, or whatever, i'd appreciate it.
again, i'm not taking sides, i just want to make sure the information
is as accurate as possible.  thanks.
