Got a job where I'll be doing some programming work.

Only problem is I'll be using PHP and PostgresSQL. Actually, that's kind of cool (only bad part is I'd rather use Ruby on Rails). But anyway...why are so many people in love with Postgres? I've come across several people who are just fanatics about using it over MySQL. My boss didn't really seem like that, but I was gonna start a thread on it earlier today anyway.

    'postgres' not 'postgre' :)

    the answer to 'which is better' is: 'it depends on what you use them for'

    for most applications there is little difference. postgresql has historically had more features typical of a high-end commercial RDBMS. mysql is catching up, though. mysql has advantages in other areas.

    i'd suggest reading this page for specifics.
