PostgreSQL 8.3 Features To Be Available After Labor Day

| Josh Berkus, a PostgreSQL developer who recently conducted a benchmark of 
| PostgreSQL vs. Oracle for Sun Microsystems, said bit-mapped indexes intended

| Jay Lyman, an analyst with The 451 Group, said the improved packaging and 
| 10-minute installation time EnterpriseDB is claiming are impressive. "Still, 
| MySQL is the open-source database of choice for many developers and that will 
| likely continue," he said.   


PostgreSQL or MySQL: Which is faster?

,----[ Quote ]
| It's easy to find benchmarks that favor one database over another,
| depending on the hardware, the configuration and the test. One database
| might do better on a single-core machine with little memory, while
| another can take better advantage of scaling to multiple core processors.
| One might lead on reads while another leads on writes.
|     * This MySQL vs. Postgres demonstrates MySQL is faster.
|     * Benchw results shows PostgreSQL as being faster.
|     * The Windows Skills blog shows MySQL is faster. 


PostgreSQL 8.2 Closes The Gap  

,----[ Quote ]
| The release is an effort to close the gap on a performance and
| functionality basis between PostgreSQL and its competitive
| proprietary counterparts such as Oracle, IBM's DB2 and Microsoft's
| SQL Server.


PostgreSQL vs. SQL Server, Oracle: Enterprise-ready and able to compete

,----[ Quote ]
| Why are you paying so much in licensing costs and annual maintenance when
| you could use PostgreSQL for free, and get community support and upgrades
| for free as well? This is the question that Neil Matthew and Richard
| Stones pose to smaller companies regarding their less critical
| applications.
