We should probably use "PostgreSQL ORDBMS" rather than "PostgreSQL 
database" (it might be worth spelling out the acronym, not sure).

This suggests that (only) 200 people have contributed to PostgreSQL 
since 1986 -- I think you mean to say that 200 people contributed to 
8.0, right?

Also, it might be worth mentioning some formulation of "PostgreSQL, the 
most advanced open-source database". Repetition, repetition, repetition :)

AFAIK "operability" is not a word. How about "Native Windows support", 
"Complete support for Windows", or "Much improved Windows support"?

Should we mention that FJ contributed some funding for this feature?
