I agree fully with this node. I love Postgres, and it is most certainly better than Inno for many reasons. But, these stupid posts fail to acknowledge anything MySQL has done right and instead they cherry pick the most-wrong way to do something and present it in such a biased fashion that Bill O'reilly would cry blood. If you want to compare apples with apples, compare the *newest* version of Postgres (8.3) with the *newest* version of MySQL and ignore the non-inno backends. It does surprisingly well.
Pg still has so much room for improvement, and it certainly isn't the easiest of the two to develop in. Though I would have to say, I've seen MySQLs "user variables" abused to do some pretty simple tasks that can be done with a simple Pg aggregate.
