    Hi,

    Uh?


    Installing postgresql on Win32 is not as simple as mysql.
    That is because postgresql is not supported for win32, it's in beta actually.
    Check this link:
    http://linux.oreillynet.com/lpt/a//l.../16/drake.html
    Our Win32 version is in Beta and will be released shortly. Our hope is to give the Win32 users incentives to test deployments before moving to one of our Unix-supported platforms.
    Actually it's possible to use postgresql with win32.
    Check this link for further info:

    Go for it, but just to try it out - you need to run it on a *nix box for any real application.

    postgresql is a real database, therefore it requires a real os.

    mysql is a toy database, therefore it runs on a toy os....windows.
