MySQL is only recently ACID compliant, and that only with InnoDB tables 
(MySQL supports several types), but that is only the beginning.

MySQL is only now starting to add support for views, stored procedures, 
triggers, and so on... PostgreSQL and other mainstream DBs have had 
these features for years; PostgreSQL has known installed databases of > 
1TB in size.  It is an industrial-strength solution.  I see MySQL as 
more of a toy anymore.

And as mentioned, PostgreSQL can be used freely in commercial projects, 
so long as a few (easily handled) requirements are met -- like 
displaying the license along with your own, etc.
