Taste and try before you buy.

Lotsa people talkin', few of them know ...

Have you actually installed and run this 'slow' (r)dbms ? On what hardware ? 
OS(s) / distro(s) ? Locales ? Collates ? Etc. ? What are you planning to do ?

Read the docs and manuals. RTFM, I know ...

With my limited experience from RH 6.0 to FC.modern / such like, and coming 
from an ancient background before desktop and all these mobile what-you-have 
things, I must say communities like this / ours are the juice of the 
industry. As opposed to proprietary systems and slow moving mammoths like, 
you know. No names. I once had a 'fully operational' #%-system installed with 
%#SQL-server and all. Yeah. Now I know.

What is slow ? Millisec-wise ? Local network ? Via internet ? Or is the bottle 
neck actually the bottle neck you are holding ? Grab the bottle and drink it, 
meanwhile, re-plan your query and output.

Just reading these lists has taught me more than I ever bargained for. I hope 
I can some day give something back.

This kind of thread is getting no one no where. Yes, no, yesn't s/he ?

Hack before you whack.

And I encourage you to test Pg. Amongst other things in life.
