I will update this post as new predictions come in. I've locked the topic because the post is just intended for my recordkeeping. To submit new predictions or discuss predictions, use the Predict the Future post. Unless otherwise noted, all predictions below have been accepted into the contest.

1. I predict that PostgreSQL will release their full version of their 8.0 database. Although it is scheduled to happen, they have pushed this date back and back every week for the past couple of months. They keep coming up with new beta versions and new release candidate versions. It is (what people say) just going to be pushed back again (probably early next month), but my prediction is that it will finally happen before this contest is over. (TRUE!)
