  MySQL can be higher performance than older versions of PostGreSQL, if
you don't do database writes.  Newer versions of Postgres have similar
performance to MySQL, with the benefit of allowing writes.

  i.e. the "MyISAM" driver is fast but unsafe.  The "InnoDB" is slower
but safe.  Postgres has the best of both.

  The main reason to use MySQL is familiarity.  That, and MySQL cluster.

  For most normal systems, Postgresql is a better choice.
