  • All the databases mentioned so far have their place.. One reason I havent gotten into Postgres yet is because a Win32 version that doesnt run on Cygwin is hard to find (someone please toss me a link so I can install it at home and try it out)

    MySQL has a native Win32 version which makes it much easier to install and try out (and yes, there are those among us who actually use Windows based servers, I am one of them :D).. Postgres, thus far, does not.. that is one reason why the only databases I've tried (and use) are Oracle and MySQL..In my experience, MySQL for simple data storage, Oracle for heavy lifting.. there isnt really anything inbetween.. (of course, if a client wants to skimp on features, reliability etc they might go for SQL server *grin*)
