Sometimes postgre even rivals oracle in functionality. I don't expect an open source database to convert too many oracle clients, but it sure would be nice to phase out mysql.


As budgets get tight a lot of companies are moving sideways. Not to pure postgresql but to Postgres Pus from enterprisedb. Its Oracle interface compatible.

Next lot of features will make the dual between Oracle and postgresql hotter. Replication has been Postgresql historic weakness when compared to oracle.

Yes the global down turn fuels open source.
