PostgreSQL is a database, just like MySQL or any of the others. It has a few features that MySQL dosn't, and is missing a few that MySQL does. It depends on the user and what he/she wishes to learn. All databases are easy to learn, you merely have to decide which you like best. Really just user preference.

 

YAY! I am the second poster here!

PostgreSQL is full Open Source and does not sell a 'commercial' or 'enterprise' version of their software. It is also very fast with large databases (comparitive to oracle), re: highly scalable.

Yeah, much like the previous posters, it's a scalable open-source database just like MySQL. I've used it now for the past three years on my linux server and have used it at work when writing database-backed web page programs.

 

I run PHPBB2 and it's been one of the only ones that's actively supported PostgreSQL. There's minor differences between it and MySQL but it really comes down to personal preference.
