I got burned on MySQL a long time ago. I'm sure the situation has improved since then. But I still avoid using it. With the exception of a few ergonomic things, Postgres has been great. I'm also quite familiar with MSSQL, but I would pick Postgres over it primarily for the easier text search and jsonb features.
I think I read that post ages ago! SQL Server is the best product Microsoft's developed for my money. I worked with 2000-2008 extensively and I'd do it again, but Postgres is still my #1 pick.
