Just read an article on how Weather.com has been successful in using
Apache, Linux, and Tomcat to run its website. Now they are looking to

Bridge and Weather.com were/are companies owned by Landmark
Communications. Maybe some of the core developers need to try and show
the benefits of PostgreSQL to Weather.com.

By the way, the article is at
