I found PostgreSQL a breeze to work with.  However, I work with Oracle 
every day at work, and PostgreSQL bears some similarity to Oracle.  I 
compiled, installed, and initialized a PostgreSQL Db on two of my boxes 
(Mac OS X and Linux) without problems...

I also didn't find the documentation to be deficient, really.  It seems 
adequate... And there are good interfaces for writing stored procedures 
in a bunch of languages including its own PL/SQL-alike language.
