Re: hosers-talk: MySQL vs PostgreSQL vs Oracle 8i

MySQL is easy to get running, and fairly portable. I've heard some people 
complain about its reliability, but I've never experienced any problems 
with it myself. OTOH, I've never put it under much of a load, either. I 
know nothing about PostgreSQL, save that code your write to use it will 
require almost no changes to work with MySQL. Oracle 8i costs money, right?
