Ruby + Postgres = Bad Idea or Good Idea?

Here's a quote from the February issue of Linux Journal (p69) that
might be of interest to you: "I use PostgreSQL as my database, as
I've decided to give PostgreSQL a go having read Reuven Lerner's
excellent series of articles comparing PostgreSQL to MySQL (see the
April, May and June 2007 issues of LJ.)"

Especially significant, now that Oracle will own MySQL.
