I view PostgreSQL as more of a competitor for the likes of, say, Oracle
or Sybase, for potential enterprise-wide use, or departmental use.
In contrast, in my opinion MySQL is a competitor for the likes of, say,
MS-Access, for, say, embedded applications, vertical market apps, and
Thus, PostgreSQL and MySQL each have their place.
