What do you mean there is no native RevDB support for PostgreSQL?  I'm 
using ALL THE TIME!!!

PostgreSQL works great.  It is free for commercial and noncommercial 
use, and it is being used with some *HUGE* databases.

It also has a number of high-end SQL features that (last I checked) 
were still missing from MySql.  PostgreSQL is fully ACID-compliant and 
has numerous free and commercial tools available to support it.

See the FAQ here:

Not nearly so simple as just using the RevDB libraries, which offer 
native support for PostgreSQL.

I've used it under both OS X and Windows (OS X development and 
standalone, Win32 standalones)
