finding an Open Source Database

This Novell CoolSolutions Community Feature gives info on finding the Right Open Source Database here.

"Choosing the right product for a particular environment can be challenging unless you know the fundamental facts. Two of the more open source databases are PostgreSQL and MySQL. Both have loyal followers and many comparable features, but also differ in important ways. Because proprietary closed-source databases from providers like IBM, Oracle and Microsoft often exceed IT budgets, PostgreSQL and MySQL have jumped into the forefront as low cost alternatives. Which one is the best? It depends on what you're hoping to accomplish."
