I'm back from Chemnitz, the german PG User Group was there with a booth, a workshop (performance tuning) and a talk about the upcoming 9.0-features.
The workshop and the talk was given by ads, so i think, he will write a blog-posting too. But i can say there was a LOT of attendees to listen his talk.
From my point of view i can say it was a success, many people comes to us and ask us 'how can we migrate from database XYZ to PostgreSQL?'. Great!
And yes, we had also a LOT of happy pg-users and we had heard much positive stories about PG.
But one disadvantage with PG comes up, particular in a hosting environment: every user can see all databases. I had heard that more than once, maybe we should think about a switch in postgresql.conf to disable this.
