You quite obviously don't have real-world experience with the two.

MySQL doesn't have the stability that PG does.  I know this from
real-world usage.  Plus it is slower than PG under heavy load; slower
for doing updates or writes to the data; and has less functionality in
terms of the SQL language (doesn't have subselects, transactions, etc.).
