I think that there is much more money in MySQL project.

MySQL had some advantages in the past, like per user quota,
Not sure what is the current state.
MySQL was ported to Win32, while Postgres still run on
Cygwin, I think.

Postgres advantages, like good SQL implementation, ability to
perform complex queries were not needed, because there
are a lot of developers with only basic knowledge of SQL.
