Instead of dropping one DB for another.... projects should start utilizing ORM's like SqlAlchemy and make their projects database agnostic.

If you use a db agnostic tool ( of which, there are many) you lose the ability to optimise your app to the db and stick another level of performance eating cruft between the app and the db.

Some apps can live with that, others cannot. Choose accordingly.
