Oh Mysql, what a mess!

As happens when you’re doing database stuff, I had to choose between MySQL and PostgreSQL last week.

It was a fairly easy choice, I wanted both foreign key constraints and full text searching; both databases support both features, but MySQL only supports them on different backends, so you can’t use them together, useful!

MySQL also seems to have some dorky constraint behavior.

Given all the other problems that MySQL has, PostgreSQL seems the obvious choice.
