Re: PostgreSQL/MySQL: Which is best?


I was reading the postgres howto yesterday. It mentions that it, postgres, is much more robust than mysql and that development on mysql is drawing to a close. Here's the link that discusses it


I was looking for an enterprise manager/query analyzer interface to postgres and somebody responded with a hint to gnome-db that is part of a larger package, which I cant find.

If anyone has any thoughts on this I'd appreciate it.

Hi all
  I only want to port a RDBMS program, from SQLWindows under Windoze98,
to RedHat 7.0, which I got installed on my PC AMD K6/2 450.
  There was no problem in the install.
  I believe I can choose from two RDBMS choices: PostgreSQL, and MySQL.

  There is my question:  Which is the most stable/well running RDBMS,
being assumed I ran the test package for PostgreSQL, which showed some
errors for numeric fields, such as 'int4', 'int8', 'float8', and so on.

  I ran the test with the PostgreSQL installed from the CD *.rpm's ( not
respin CD ), after having been compiling the test package the way the
PostgreSQL-HOWTO indicates. So much it should'nt be any error in the
process, though the amount of errors, astonishes me.

All advices welcome.
