Well, since I haved saved 3 clients over $250000 in 5 years by moving from Oracle to Postgres it is an exceptionally high quality toy!

Postgres is better than Oracle in the SMB market. Much better. The only disadvantage is that I spend about 20% more time monitoring, se tuning and maintaining the Postgres databases. Roughly $200-300/month extra from the client perspective. Licence cost=0

Even using EnterpriseDB saves an immense amount of money in the SMB market.

I would not recommend Postgres for large (> 2TB) databases or for large corporations.
