After reading that Sun may in fact be choosing Postqresql as their primary database server I decided that I would try and install it on my windows box.
I should point out that I would normally use postgres on a linux box, but recently I've been doing quite a bit on windows for development.
I downloaded postgres and began the install. Soon I came to the language encoding selection. Hmmmmm... Where's unicode?
After googling for a bit I came upon a note that postgres does not support unicode for windows. ARGG! I do realize that this is a winblows problem, but it is a real problem for me. All of the apps I am creating these days are multiligual (hence unicode based).
This is a major deal breaker for me since it renders postgresql entirely useless. Guess I'll have to give up my multimedia experience and just head over to Linux. *wink*
