I find this statement about pgsql being hard to admin a bit hard to swallow
as well. Maybe it's cause pgsql is all i've _really_ used, and did tech
support
for it for a while.

I've had a few run in's with mysql[ for personal projects] and tried to
 approach it with an open mind, but often i find the documentation is
unclear
and hard to follow.

PostgreSQL has GREAT documentation and it feels very straight forward to
run.

The only problem is convincing everyone else that.
