I agree, I'm a big fan of PostgreSQL as well.  I started using MySQL
with PHP, but now I have used PostgreSQL for three seperate production
databases and I find it just as easy to use as MySQL, and much more
flexible.  I think the general feeling among PHP developers
(especially beginners) is that MySQL is easier to work with, but I
personally don't understand that.  I think the command line 'psql' is
just as easy as the command line 'mysql', and when I need a GUI I
think pgAdmin II fills in nicely.  And you get foreign keys, triggers,
stored procedures, sub-selects, unions, etc. etc. etc.

Sorry, just had to send a "me too" response... :)
