I seem to have a choice on my server of MYSQL, MSSQL, or PGSQL databases. For someone just getting their feet wet ( :oops: thats a nice way of saying ignorant) does anyone have any thoughts as to which is easier to use?
Thank you!

mySQL is the most widely used and the one you will have an easier time getting support for

I'm sort of new at this also. But I tried MySql, got the hang of it, and that's what I use. You only need one. And I think MySql is the most used!

mysql is the most used because that is the name in the industry right now. postgre is only normally used when it is required by a certain product.

I am excited for mysql 5.1. But that is going to take a long time. :(

Seeing as its around 2yrs before anything hits the release tree.
