@warren, it would not be a "real" shell like ksh, so they wouldn't be able to do it.

comment Is MySQL better than PostgreSQL in something?
Of course, I specified it was just an impression because if I don't actually try serving the same data under the same load I cannot be sure, and I know I'm not really proving anything. Thanks for clarifying the latest performace gains of MySQL.

comment Is MySQL better than PostgreSQL in something?
Being sequences the most widely used approach does not make auto_increment fields any less 'handy', and it is relevant to me because I'm asking for differences between the 2 dbms in question. But this is not stopping me from switching to pgsql so I agree that it's not a real problem.

I'm also interested in the administrative aspects. I was not sure where to post this. BTW you are right about scaling. By scales better I really meant, on a single machine, not on clusters. MySQL has very little performance gain on multicore systems and this days multicore are the norm. Also I've seen MySQL go from good performance to almost useless when the workload increased, and the impression was that postgresql would have handled the load better, but I understand this is debateable and should be inquired better. BTW, the replication arguments are worth being considered.

Interesting, but as far as I've understood it, this only applies to COUNT(*) queries WITHOUT the where clause on the MyISAM engine. Other than that, it performs similarly. Or is postgresql still slower even compared to InnoDB and MyISAM with a where clause?
