Without starting a flamefest here or anything... why do you say this? I 
am asking from ignorance. I don't do much databases myself, but we used 
to have a guy here, who had an obvious preference for PostgreSQL. But 
when I was talking to another Linux neophyte the other day, he didn't 
know either, but he got the impression that he read and saw more of 
MySQL. Which left us both asking each other, "so if we had to set 
something up ourselves, which would we choose" for which both of us had 
to admit ignorance.
