"A new version (9.0) of PostgreSQL is in beta and ready
for public testing. If version 9.0 lives up to its proposed feature
list, then it is serious competition for MySQL. PostgreSQL
proponents have long suggested that PostgreSQL has always enjoyed
superiority over MySQL. I beg to differ but that may be changing.
"I tried using PostgreSQL several times over the past few years,
beginning with version 6.x. I received it on CD for review. It was
OK. Nothing thrilling or special. I did think it was an ambitious
project but at the time, I didn't really care much for it. I
thought it was clunky, bloated and too complicated.
"I tried again with a 7.x version. Same results."
