My point was that how many fortune 500 companies have 
mission-critical services that depend on PostgreSQL, especially if
they're public-facing? Sure, some have... many more have not. The few
that have are on the bleeding edge (which isn't so bloody afterall).

In any case, this is rapidly changing. The next few years will certainly
be very interesting. :)
