Clients aside, and as Christopher wrote, there are lots of differences
between the two systems. PostgreSQL supports higher-end Enterprise-level
RDBMS features. MySQL tends to be quicker. For example, and as just one
example, PostgreSQL can store and handle GIS data through PostGIS. MySQL's
OGC-compatible OGC support was introduced in the latest production-worthy
release. Both MySQL and PostgreSQL are stable and easy to use and well
supported. If you're trying to learn something, I definitely recommend
reading the documentation. If you have some specific task in mind and
think PostgreSQL might be the better fit, post a question to the list.
