Both are excellent products with unique strengths, and the choice is often a matter of personal preference.

PostgreSQL offers overall features for traditional database applications, while MySQL focuses on faster performance for Web-based applications.

Open source development will bring more features to subsequent releases of both databases.

Who uses these databases?

Here are a few examples of companies that use PostgreSQL: Apple, BioPharm, Etsy, IMDB, Macworld, Debian, Fujitsu, Red Hat, Sun Microsystem, Cisco, Skype.
