Hello All,
Does anyone know where I can find info comparing Postgres and MySql. I'm starting a new project and must choose between the two. Any ideas would be great,thanks

PostgreSQL is a more robust database than MySql. MySQl is better for static databases. It lacks transactional functionality, etc.
I'll see if I can find a url about it, but definitely go with Postgresql
