Dear Postgresql team,

I find this page very inappropriate.
The page:
http://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/Why_PostgreSQL_Instead_of_MySQL_2009

The title is an advertisement. Could have been PostgreSQL versus MySQL/2009.

I did not read the page for a single reason: just by scrawling, moving the
page up an down
I didn't see a number or a graph. There is even a section named speed: no
numbers.
Even a subsection called: Benchmarks. No numbers again.

Please read your own wiki: Benchmarks. This is advertisement.

But you might want to know how I got to the page. I was trying to sell
alternatives to MS
products. I included postgresql within the others (MySQL, Oracle). Honestly:
never again.

I do understand that it might be a monopole, but it does just work better.
Not faster.
Such a document from postgresql wiki is not really inviting.

Best
F

PS:
I saved the page, just in case. But please: Check the benchmarks section.
