Okay, I know MySQL sucks, but how is PostgreSQL comparable to Oracle?
I've started with a company without any Linux clue (they do have a VAX
and two Solaris boxen, though), and I'd like to demo a decent Linux
server, including a database.

How hard is it migrating from Oracle to PostgreSQL? Do I have to
convert the database and index blobs?
