Bad application design won't get you anywhere with PostgreSQL or MySQL

I am so sick and tired of engaging into flame wars comparing MySQL and PostgreSQL especially when people haven't used both databases together. Both databases have their own strengths, however, if your application is not tuned for the underlying database, you are out of help.

Why do people hate MySQL so much without looking under its hood?

In my opinion, none is the right tool for *every* job.
I will add more as time goes by and would appreciate other resources discussing MySQL vs. PostgreSQL.
