I wouldn't. MySQL is still full of non-standard weirdisms, and a lot of
the examples you find on the web are by people who really have no
business touching a database.
PostgreSQL _used_ to be more complicated to set up and install... back
in the 6.x days circa 1999. Now there is even a friendly windows
installer, and autovacuum Just Works.
PostgreSQL is easy enough for beginners, and powerful enough that you
won't have to switch databases when your needs grow.
