database market share 2003

http://biz.yahoo.com/rc/040526/tech_...etshare_1.html

Interesting to see that database sales for windows is more than
Unix.

Thanks for the heads up. By all means Stay Pure (TM).


I didn't say "stay pure." I just repeated what Ted Codd said. Those are the
facts. I didn't start the conversation about the 12 rules of Ted Codd,
someone else did.

But I do think that Oracle has moved further form the relational model than
DB2, although I suspect that the IBM marketing people are pressuring the lab
to add the same or similar enhancements. People seem to like to compare
features of the products they buy (at least some of them) even when they are
of no real benefit or even if they are somewhat detrimental.

Another problem of moving from the relational model is that SQL standards
get compromised which makes it hard for customers to move seamlessly between
platforms. But that is part of the marketing strategy, especially of the
companies that have the biggest installed base.


The fact that a feature is added does not compel a developer to use it.

Only when they remove referential constraints I'll start to get nervous.

I'm about as ready to believe these numbers as the ones published
by any other software house ... self-serving.
This is not nearly as important as understanding that DB2 runs
the same code base across all platforms


Please go back on your medication. Not even IBM itself would agree
with this statement.

Referential constraints are part of the SQL standard, although I am not sure
that all database vendors follow the ANSI standard exactly.

heh heh - no, actually, but I've seen Bad Taste, and if you said you were
friends of Derek I'd be very afraid.

My only complaint is that we don't have a report showing
Microsoft as the market leader. Surely somebody can find
one--just kidding!

Truce!

( Mark I do appreciate the links thanks. )

i hereby gloat for all of those who have asked the question, on
this thread-that-will-not-die: is IBM fudging its numbers with
MF stuff. going ab-fab nowhere on linux.

now the java twinks think they have invented something brave and new
in XQUERY, XPATH, and the like. all they've done is make an attempt to
build relational navigation on top of a hierarchical data structure.
no matter how much they kick and scream, won't work.


Hey, I worked on several R's on top of H's, they worked just fine,
until they eventually got replaced by native R's. Hadda start
somewhere, the scenery was different in the early '80s.

Let 'em fail if they must. The real problem is in defining failure.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
