That is right, 

It seems that all depend on users tasks. I did have feedbacks from Valentina
developers that yes Postgre comparing to mySQL is much slow (in times). But
not so far I have hear opinion that Postgre (latest?) did win mySQL on

So keep always in mind that DB tasks can be VERY different. For some tasks
one dbms can be better, for other tasks another. It is good, as army
soldier, to have skills with few kinds of weapon :-)
