Bruce Momjian Interview in InformationWeek

InformationWeek has a good interview with Bruce: Open Source PostgreSQL Developer Bruce Momjian Spills The DB Beans.

In the interview, Bruce talks about how he spends one day a week at the EnterpriseDB site but most of his time working on Postgres.

There aren't a lot of quotes in the interview. I wonder if a longer interview is coming.

There are a few anti-comparisons between "bearded sage" Momjian and JBoss' Marc Fleury and, of course, the obligatory comparison to MySQL.

PostgreSQL sought to match major relational database systems and afterward addressed performance. "We didn't focus on performance until the end. MySQL had that right at the start," he acknowledges.

It's a short read but worth the time.
