I'm curious. Why?
Is there some advantage to Postgres over MySql?

The reason I ask is that I am torn between these two for my own use.
Up until now I've been a happy user of Intebase on both Windows and 
Linux but I'd like to move my Linux DB to an Opensource one and 
although Firebird is the obvious choice one of the big two would 
offer good experience(*). But which one?

Oh, I can install additional modules, but it would be great if Ubuntu
had them...

Ubuntu??? A linux distro maybe?

(*) I'm currently using SqlLite for my online tutorial on database 
programming but the more I use it the less I like it! To the extent 
that I might change to one of the others even though it means a 
re-write of the tutorial topic...
