In praise of PostgreSQL  ↦

Not only does Drew DeVault have a lot of insightful and interesting things to say about Postgres, I’m just generally a fan of people praising good software. Many people are quick to offer criticism, but slow to heap some praise. Let’s change that, maybe?

After 25 years of persistence, and a better logo design, Postgres stands today as one of the most significant pillars of profound achievement in free software, alongside the likes of Linux and Firefox. PostgreSQL has taken a complex problem and solved it to such an effective degree that all of its competitors are essentially obsolete, perhaps with the exception of SQLite.

For even more Postgres praise, listen to our episode of The Changelog with Craig Kerstiens.
