Like what? 

I agree with Jonathan. PostgreSQL is easier to setup and maintain, just as
easy to use, and very well supported, although not as many off-the-street
hosting options.

Biggest advantage of starting with PostgreSQL is what Jonathan said: you
won't be learning all sorts of bad things that MySQL throws upon you, that
you'll have to unlearn later.

And PostgreSQL will grow with you as your needs do.
