I don't use anything else but postgres now. It's faster and more reliable 
(akonadi fsck is a good test). However for recent versions of the Qt driver 
one needs to patch akonadi as the Qt driver has become case sensitive for sql 
queries. It's a one liner which has probably made it's way to the latest 
source by now. Just in case you can find the patch via this page.
I have updated postgres twice now with no issues. It's pretty simple. 
This page gives a good description
The driver file will already exist you just need to edit it to use the correct 
driver [QPSQL]
Hope this helps
