Oracle vs MySQL vs PostgreSQL

I'll up front-admit I didn't read even 10% of your very large posting. I am
responding strictly to the subject.

RDBMS software is a tool. You choose the tools that is best for the job. You
don't try to haul trees out of the forest on a motorcycle and you don't bring a
logging truck to a motorcycle race.

I see no value in the comparison referred to in your subject. The fact that they
are all RDBMS products is as relevant to the issue as the fact that logging
trucks and motorcycles all have tires.

1. PostgreSQL vs Oracle vs DB2 vs MySQL - Which

One idea is encouraging people to make local mailing lists all over
the world. That will be easier to read/write mails for non-English
speakers and will decrease the traffic in the main mailing
list. Actually I have been running a mailing list in Japan for years
and now it has +4000 subscribers. I believe this kind of thing has
been already done in the world (maybe Japan, Russia ...?), but I think
we should encourage them more, like having pointers to such lists on
the pgsql web site.
