Response to: MySQL is VHS to Postgresql's Beta though

Once, I saw someone writing a small, single-user application to manage recipes. He used MySQL. "My word, man!" I said. "You need updatable views, triggers, transaction logs, and hot-swappable disks! What if by some quantum miracle you split into multiple users and try to update the database simultaneously? What if you sell this application to a bank sometime? Don't you care about the data integrity of customer financial transactions?"


Sadly, he didn't listen.
