Dear Bruce,

Taking the example of pgAdmin III, which reached nearly one million hits in 
December (http://www.pgadmin.org/stats/webalizer), nothing seems impossible 
for PostgreSQL.

Why not create an all-in-one bundle offering PostgreSQL, Apache, Php and 
PhpPgAdmin for Win32 and ... mass-release it.

There is no need to create a complete installer. There could be a single 
installer executing other installers (like it is sometimes the case in the 
Win32 world). So that installers remain different.

A single web page like "http://win.postgresql.org" in 40 languages is enough 
to mass-release PostgreSQL.

With an installer and a single web page, PostgreSQL Win32 could quickly reach 
one million downloads every month.

There is no need to look for complicated strategies. Every month, there can be 
10% more downloads. In the end, people will even forget the name of MySQL.

Cheers,
Jean-Michel
