PostgreSQL vs. SQL Server, Oracle
I’d like to see a comparison with MySQL on similar terms, but that’s possibly only because PostgreSQL admins tend to be more beardy and grumpy than any others. More rationally, I suppose MySQL tends to be a little more accessible and has become a de facto standard as part of LAMP applications.
It’s a shame they don’t expand on ‘somewhat more limited’ stored procedures, because they can be such an important DBA/developer tool, particularly in a multi-tier environment.
And while Microsoft have some good tools, they also have lots that suck. And Oracle’s tools are ok but are supplemented by free or cheap third-party tools.
