Yeah, saying you won implies that all the competition you'd expect in that
category was soundly thrashed and specifically smacking them might be
considered poor form for the new release announcement. Simon's statement
is a little misleading the way it's worded now as well (it wasn't their
overall product of the year, just the database one). How about this
PostgreSQL has recently been announced Developer.com's "Database Tool or
Add-in" Product of the Year for 2008. This follows 5 consecutive Editor's
Choice Awards for "Best Database" from LinuxJournal.
