[DBMS] PostegreSQL and MySQL: whatever you want them?

I remember that MySQL had a good technology called "InnoDB" before the Sun; PostegreSQL while he was ahead on MySQL features such as triggers, etc. ...

According to you what features you choose to use one rather than the other?
What influences your choice?

Two excellent RDBMS, is always dependent on who needs one has.

MySQL in many situations is rapid, PostreSQL offers some more advanced features.

I also remember me, even if only on the fast MySQL tables as MyISAM, as refined + InnoDB was not really that much efficient.

I was wondering if you were reminded of the practical situations in which you are aware of these differences and you have chosen a rather than the other.

I for simple Web applications, unfortunately, chose what was and stop.

Re: [DBMS] PostegreSQL and MySQL: whatever you want them?

After reading the Wiki and other IT manuals and main discussions are now using Google it seems that:

MySQL:
  • R-DBMS
  • little free
  • widespread
  • very compatible
  • efficient technologies such as DBMS and try "pot"

PostgreSQL:
  • OR-DBMS
  • very free
  • not widespread
  • customizable
  • very experimental and futuristic
  • trigger
