My take over the last few years has been that while the buzz is always about MySQL, the enterprise features that people are waiting for in MySQL are already there in Postgresql and have been for a while. MySQL seems to have better marketing and hype, and it's easier to get up and running for projects that start small (like most do). But if you're looking for an open source enterprise database, MySQL just isn't there yet. So maybe greenplum (http://www.greenplum.com/) is onto something?
