This is my understanding regarding the OLE DB driver for PostgreSQL:

(1) The OLE DB Provider lacks the robustness that the ODBC driver has.
(2) The OLE DB Provider lacks much of the Functionality that an OLE DB provider should have.  
(3) And this probably will not change soon since the OLE DB driver is not actively supported.
