Check this out. They chose GNOME instead of KDE because Qt requires a 
proprietary license for commercial apps while GTK+ is fully GNU. As they 
put it the licensing "is the sole reason for this decision".

But when it comes to databases they've chosen "MySQL with non-GPL 
libraries". How's this different from Qt vs GTK+?

However he does say he is "not a database pro, and will listen to 
argument about the merits of other database servers". So perhaps 
PostgreSQL advocacy team has something to say here.
