Don't forget that pg has it's own windows app for managing it too.  So you can try doing things via the GUI to see how they mesh then move to the command line when you want to get your hands dirty.

Depends on what your goal is... If it is just "how does a rdbms work" then
mysql would be easier because it has the better set of graphical/webbased
management tools (phpmyadmin is impressive). mysql is also a little bit
easier to setup at the beginning.

If you're looking to do more interesting things like tablespaces (stuff that
you can find in the large commercial engines) you need to go with pg. many
people get turned off pg when they can't figure out authentication within the
first 5 minutes but it is well worth it to me.
