I would go with MySQL 4.0.17; it's very easy to learn, and I like it more than PostgreSQL for smaller apps. But for big enterprise apps, yeah, use Oracle.

There is a MySQL navigator GUI program.
You could run this program on Linux, Windows or BSD client computers.
Here's their home page:

People always ignore me when I say this, but if you ever care to do relational databases in the future don't bother learning or using mysql.

PostgreSQL is a full fledged, very powerful, relational database system. It implements the SQL language in a way familure to people who use commercial SQL prodcuts rather then in the slightly different (though no more difficult to use) mysql methods.
