I think some users are, but I think that the ratio of users new to
databases to those familiar with databases is going to be a lot
higher for MYSQL. I think this will also be the case for postgres
users running on Windows once the windows port is available.

As long as people learn and give back by helping other people once they
know more, things will probably be OK.
