At the Forge - PostgreSQL 9.0

Looking for a relational database? The latest version of PostgreSQL makes a great database even greater.
Conclusion

Am I gushing? Yes, absolutely. There are very few pieces of software that give me such pleasure to use and on which I feel I can utterly depend, and PostgreSQL is a select member of that club. It keeps my data safe, offers me a huge number of features, allows me to extend the database in whatever ways I want and need, and it gives me excellent performance with a modest time investment. If you're thinking of switching to an open-source database, or if you have already been using one and want to try something powerful but still rather easy to use, you would do well to try PostgreSQL. Especially with the latest features added in version 9.0, I'm sure you'll find something to like.
