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

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

"IBM has slipped slightly, with its growth
coming mainly from customers' recommitment to mainframe DB2, and
continued strong growth of mainframe DB2 tools for DBAs

<snip>

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.


I heard that a lot of oracle growth in linux was due to migrations by
customers of solaris to linux.

Think the DB2 flat rate might be due to more IBM customers staying
with AIX than Sun customers staying with Solaris? Not to say that AIX
is better than Sun, but it certainly has a more solvent & solid
company behind it.

I typically recommend solaris for oracle, but these days it seems like
everyone wants to go with linux instead of solaris. DB2 on the other
hand works best with aix - but those ibm p-series boxes are pretty
cool, not much more than intel, and can run either aix or linux.

Don't know that anyone can comment on that other than Mark and he may
not be able to comment for obvious reasons. But I can tell you that I
am currently looking at migrating three production systems from Solaris
to Linux. Though the hardware may remain Sun.

Well I'll say it ... AIX 5L is probably the best *NIX O/S on the market.

With Oracle my first choice, if budget wasn't a concern would be IBM
hardware with AIX 5L. But bring in budget considerations and I
immediately start looking at Dell or Compaq/HP 1U boxes with RedHat Linux.

Surprisingly enough, that doesn't look like it's the case. More can't be
said, but some absolutely fascinating things seem to be happening in the
market at this time.

Damn - broke my own ceasefire (sort of). Apologies, let peace reign.

Uhm why would a University waste time teaching a CIS / Software
engineering major about commerical products?

You teach a student theory not applied applications.

Oh? You meant SAP taught to Accounting grunts?
You must have gone to a trade school. ;-)

Sorry but the point is that You teach theory in schools not
applications. But thats a whole different thread. ;-)

may be not. and you may be joking. but one of the few things i
remember from my college days is this (from a professor, in
passing):

tradesmen are guided by experience. professionals are guided by theory.

And consultants are guided by money!

My Depression-era dad used to say, learn a trade, so you can always
have something to fall back on, go to college so you can become a
professional - 50% or more of CEO's are lawyers. Get a job and invest
in real estate. And you know what? My teaching-credentialed
brother-in-law fell back on a trade (appliance repairman for Sears),
and is now a retired millionaire. Just like in those
millionaire-next-door books.

I had a college professor (head of a pre-med program) who more-or-less
jokingly denigrated MD's as manual laborers. So there you go.
