If you guys have an Oracle background, then you'll likely want
PostgreSQL because it is more Oracle-ish -- PL/pgSQL et. al.

If you want a nice graphical user interface -- maybe something similar
to TOAD or Oracle Enterprise Manager, then MySQL has better GUI tools.
 PostgreSQL has a GUI tool -- pgAdmin III (which ain't bad) -- but
MySQL's GUI tools are superb.
