Any reason why MySQL won? Just because it is the choice of the uneducated masses does not mean it should be the choice of the editors.

Agree, Postgres is actually an "proper" SQL database.

MySQL is just MicrosoftAccess without the UI, when it comes to functionality

I can think of three reasons from personal experiences using them both. MySQL exceeds postgresql in; ease of administration, driver support and availability of 3rd party software.

Postgresql might be the best RDBMS system from a technical point of view, but imo it falls short on the three issues I mention from a end-user point of view.

Make that three...

When matching Open Source software head-to-head with proprietary offerings, why do we insist on starting what should be a "second string" database. Unless your only criteria is speed, Postgresql is a much better representative of what free software is capable of achieving.

I agree. With the exeption of replication, I cannot

see any reason to use mysql. postrgesql provides way more useful features, and is just as easy to use.
