Eh? I don't mean to troll or anything, but since when has Postgres NOT been dead? It's a bit of a niche. I've worked with more than one database over the course of my 10 year web development career, MS-SQL, Oracle, MySQL, but certainly NOT Postgres. I don't know a single person who has ever used it.
There's a reason why they put an M in LAMP, you know
Well then, you're a retarded guy working with a bunch of mouth-breathers. Postgres is used plenty, by people who want a FOSS database with real features, good performance, and great reliability. MySQL is popular for the same reason that Windows is popular -- it's easy to get started with. But -- it's also a toy.
