PostgreSQL is the first real database server I've ever used.  I've not 
used Oracle or Sybase or anything like that, so the only thing I can 
compare it with is desktop database systems like MS-Access, and all I can 
say is that there' s no comparison. :-)  I don't want PostgreSQL to be 
like Access, nor anything else for that matter, but just be what it is.
