Editorial Do you depend on your computer for your living? If so, I'm sure you've thought long and hard about which hardware and software to use. I'd like to explain why I use generic "white boxes" running open source software. These give me a platform I rely on for 100% availability. They also provide a low-cost solution with excellent security and privacy.

"PostgreSQL only has compatibility last time I checked with Microsoft SQL 7"

Would be nice to know what you mean.

PostgreSQL is one of the most, if not the most, standards compliant database out there.

Obviously a lot of databases don't stick to the standards or they create their own (extensions) first before it is proposed as a standard.
