what if we'd have some video about real-time installation of PostgreSQL
under set of different OS ? xvidcap or some other tool could be used.
This video could be shown on conference as a station break on tv monitor.
On my Linux system, it takes several minutes to compile, install, initdb
and start postmaster.
