Unfortuntely, when designing solutions for customers/users, we're often
looking at setups where we require multi-master database clusters -
whatever is said about pgsql, I am not aware of a sane solution for
I like pgsql for my local applications, cidr, and inet datatypes are
incredibly useful, and I find it quick enough for my requirements.
Having said that, I also like MySQL - they both have their oddities, and
there seems little point in a "holy war" about database solutions.
It's a shame there's so much "xx vs yy" with lots of OSS, when there's
clearly not a template for when one is better than another - IMHO,
evaluating each product on a per-case basis is the way to go.
