Let's face it, PostreSQL (which I have used and like very much) doesn't have the brand recognition that those other proprietary databases (or MySQL) have. People only know it as an alternative for MySQL.
Sad but true: PostgreSQL is the Sybase of the Free software world, and I would love you to prove me wrong. Perhaps the shadow of MySQL is what is keeping PostgreSQL from greater acceptance, who knows; I agree that a wider known PostgreSQL would be a great outcome.
