Tatsuo, this has always fascinated me.  Any insights you could share about how PostgreSQL achieved the prominence it has in Japan (and how MySQL did not) would be very interesting.

Right. PHP is our friend. In Japan Apache+PHP+PostgreSQL combo is the
standard for Web systems. Very few people uses Apache+PHP+MySQL.
