Mysql is www.tcx.se.

As I understand the essential difference is as follows:

PostgreSQL is a genuine attempt to produce an SQL/92 RDBMS.  [Some would
say misguided].

MySQL doesn't try very hard to be SQL92 conformant, but is *very* fast
indeed.  It doesn't do transactions (but has a custom locking syntax which
is faster....), but does fast joins..

YMMV.  Go read about them ;)_
