I'm glad you like PostgreSQL. I've looked at it bofree, though not much since the 8.1++ releases, which are the first I consider "real database" software. It has potential, but I still consider it inferior compared to SQL-Server. Call me a SQL-Server bigot :) At least, until someone proves to me beyond a reasonable doubt that another option can compete on performance, stability, programmability (especially complex nested SQL statements), and connectivity via Windows (the only desktop that matters - for now). And, I don't care for Oracle: overly-complex for any average installation.8.3 was the first "real" version of Postgres as far as I can gather, having finally gotten cursors of any ability (though, I avoid cursors usually). And, they have "RETURN QUERY", which I think is a start towards good nested T-SQL type coding... though, if I understand right, the PL/pgSQL v8.4's new "EXECUTE USING in pl/pgsql" is essentially functions with table-results, which is a much-needed item imho - though, perhaps I just don't get the difference between these. Also, v8.4. will have CASE statement support, which I consider a "must have" for many things. You know, if SQL-Server ran on Linux, I'd have no reason to ever look at anything else. I still despise Oracle for its complexity, otherwise I'd consider it. DB2 gets my interest somewhat, but I don't want to take time to implement SPs in Java (vs. T-SQL). I will await your longer-term Postgres opinions, and perhaps consider going that route. I am especially interested in *performance* and stability. FREE is nice, but FREE and solid product is super nice! I'll hope for the latter.
And I was just woerdning about that too!
