And that's wrong.
PostgreSQL is pronounced Post-Gres-Q-L, and is also
sometimes referred to as just Postgres. An audio file
is available in MP3 format for those would like to
hear the pronunciation.
Search thru the postgresql-general list archives and the firm stance
of the developers is "Post-Gres-Q-L", as is the mp3 file.
