( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
When i first started working at Surfari.com with maverick and eduardo, i asked mav this very question. We were using MySQL at the time, and he explained that the MySQL people were more interested in speed than features. Conversely, the Postgres people were more interested in features than speed. Since we didn't need transactions or inner selects and we did need speed, maverick chose MySQL.

Flash forward to now. Postgres has managed to finally catch up with MySQL in the speed department, but MySQL is still behind Postgres in the feature department. Me? I still use MySQL simply from habit, but i still haven't worked on anything serious enough that requires triggers or transactions. RI, views, and inner selects are good, but not completely necessary. If you need them or anticipate needing them (or any of the other features that Postgres has), use Postgres. As long as you are using Perl, you will be smiled upon favorably by the Gods. ;)
