PostgreSQL 8.0.0 is out

I've been using PostgreSQL 8 in beta/RC for a while and it's pretty good, and now it's released - woo-hoo!

We also use rhdb/PostgreSQL 7.3.x on a lot of boxes and that's fairly schweet. Not that I've anything against MySQL (I'm pretty sure that it's obvious that I prefer the GPL over BSD for the licence at least) but it just isn't anywhere near as featured as PostgreSQL.

Don't even mention SQLite! ;-)

Each has it's place I guess - I can see SQLite being potentially useful for small web apps in users home directories for instance; and then you can scale up through MySQL to Postgres. Horses for courses :)
