Why MySQL and not PostgreSQL?

-- Randal L. Schwartz, Perl hacker
Be sure to read my standard disclaimer if this is a reply.

update: To those that downvoted this posting, just be aware that you'll be seeing more just like this one. PostgreSQL is horribly under-known, and I'm going to make sure that every casual mention of MySQL has PostgreSQL mentioned somewhere in the thread. MySQL has had its day. PostgreSQL is now leading in terms of functionality and support, not to mention having a much better license structure.

    Hi merlyn!

    Short answer: because PG just doesn't cut it for me. It's just so clunky imo. I don't like it. Maybe I will someday. But today doesn't seem to be that day.

      In that case, why MySQL and not SQLite :)

        Flatfiles are less clunky than that! best yet, /dev/null!

    I guess you've not heard of MariaDB then? (Which does better than both). PostgreSQL is "under-known" for a reason. Stuffing it in people's faces only makes it annoying, and naturally more people will avoid it. What your suggesting, and doing "...I'm going to make sure that every casual mention of MySQL has PostgreSQL mentioned..."), is a big disservice to the PostgreSQL community, you're hurting us. So please stop.

      ... So please stop.

      Pay attention to the dates, I doubt he's kept it up since 2004

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
