The real difference between MySQL and PostgreSQL

Just at FOSDEM, i was talking to a visitor and Susanne was talking to Lenz Grimmer from MySQL, who just visited our booth. The visitor i was talking to asked me, what the difference between both databases is, i pointed behind and told him: She (pointing to Susanne) is from PostgreSQL, he (pointing to Lenz) is from MySQL. Just ask for yourself.


The visitor looked right, looked left, back right and told me with a smile: "Yes, i can see the difference" ;-)

Estaban en el FOSDEM dos representantes de ambas bases de datos, cuando a un curioso le dio por preguntar cuales eran las diferencias entre ambas bases de datos. Por suerte hay gente que con pocas explicaciones lo entiende todo :D Comments ()

This is one of the few times when a picture would have been worth a few thousand words. So... http://lwn.net/1999/features/LinuxWorld/lenz.html I wasn't sure that this is Susanne. http://images.google.com/images?svnum=10&hl=en&rlz=1B2GGGL_enUS209US209&q=+%22Susanne+Ebrecht%22&btnG=Search

We do not talk about better or worse, we just talk about differences.
