Use Linux and MySQL. Problems solved. If PostgreSQL has problems its developers should solve them. If they care..

Use FreeBSD and PostgreSQL. Problems solved, and you also get a proper database for free.

you act as if MySQL doesn't run into the same problems. I think you just don't understand the details well enough.

MySQL avoids the problem by just dropping your data instead ;) . You prefer fast over correctness, right?

He also missed the point -- that these are problems which *cannot* be solved by the PostgreSQL developers alone; not without implementing what amounts to an operating system inside the database (as some other big database vendors do, and they all hate it).
