There is an interesting report (in English) about the use of free 
Open-Source software in companies and public institutions in Germany, UK 
and Sweden. (As Germany is one of the most important and largest markets 
for Open-Source software)

This FLOSS report covers to some extend specific figures about 
Open-Source DBMS, reasons why organizations have decided for OS DBMS, 
market shares of OSS DBMS, etc. - PostgreSQL and MySQL are mentioned too 
(see chapter 5.1.2 OSS used for databases, Page 37+).

The report has been made by Berlecon Research (http://www.berlecon.de)
in 2002, financed by the European Commission. Maybe you already know
this report, but for them who do not, I provide this report as PDF 
temporarily at following URL:

http://www.go-gen.com/tmp/FLOSS1-Usage_of_Free_Open_Source.pdf

Hopefully, these information may be useful for better understanding the 
needs of our customers, or the promotion of PostgreSQL.

Have a nice W/E
Anastasios
