    Differences

    Differences betwwen mysql and postgresql

    Mysql:
    - less features
    - no transactions (transactions belong to oracle )
    - use it for reading
    - useless for Business critical appliactions
    - Strange versioning 5.0.12 was beat 5.0.13 was offical release - do you know if you use a beta software


    Postgresql
    - more features
    - stable
    - more robust
    - free for commercial use


    As I have said before If someon asks about a comparison between these two databases then you don't need a database for your work.
    http://www.postgresql.org
    --Postgresql is the only kind of thing--

    Also, you can search the web for several comparisons of MySQL, PostgreSQL, and other open-source projects such as Firebird. Overall, PostgreSQL fares well in these comparisons. It is touted as the most advanced open-source RDMS and I think deserves this designation. Navicat now has a PostgreSQL version but there are other choices - pgAdmin (free, comes with PostgreSQL) and Lightning pgAdmin (a modestly priced but very nice administrative interface). Download a copy of PostgreSQL and see all it can do!
