CREATE VIEW foo AS SELECT * FROM OPENQUERY(MYLINKEDSERVER, 'SELECT *
FROM public.mytable WHERE foo < 10 LIMIT 5')

As I already pointed out, the correct syntax is SERVER..schema.table.
However, SQL Server still doesn't like doing this with psqlODBC, as
others on the net have found it also doesn't work with Oracle.

That won't work because the driver would then report the servers
capabilities incorrectly to applications which may then generate invalid
queries.
