I'm gonna third Sergin's comment.  There's very little you'll run into while learning Rails that SQLite can't handle and if you do, consider it a learning experience.

In terms of learning about the strengths of postgres, two great resources are http://postgresguide.com/ and Postgres' own feature matrix http://www.postgresql.org/about/featurematrix/

To dive into NoSQL and mongo, check out this article http://bjclark.me/2009/08/nosql-if-only-it-was-that-easy/ Also pay special attention to his conclusion about picking a database in general.

For SQLite, I will simply post these two articles: http://streaming.nfm.id.au/stop-using-sqlite-for-rails-development-ndash/ and http://maxradi.us/documents/sqlite/

I also recommend 7 Databases in 7 Weeks. It's a great book.

Happy reading,

Hey all.

I'm still fairly new to Rails but I feel like I am a little clueless about our choices of database and I would like to learn more.

Is there anything you all know of that compares postgresql, mongo, sqlite, etc? I want to have a better overview of their strengths and weaknesses, and also make sure that my machine is ready to use all of them. 

I appreciate your feedback.
