Well, if those completely-new to databases - see, that outside of
Microsoft Access, SQL Server, and Oracle - MySQL is the most widely
downloaded _open-source_ solution
(http://www.mysql.com/why-mysql/marketshare/); and also, that, by
learning to become proficient in this, they can also get a certification
(recognised by managers etc.) - then, why not become a mysql guru.
My point being, that with the latest developments with pgsql, and the
media awareness EnterpriseDB has brought by winning the SanFrancisco
LinuxWorld 05 Best-Database-Solution award, people will begin to become
aware of pgsql, as a more advanced open-source solution with all the
readily seen advantages thereof.
Now, if I can also get certified in that, then why not go for pgsql instead.
The more DB beginners going for pgsql the better for it's future, no?
