Subject:Re: MySQL vs. Oracle (not speed)
View as plain text  
I think this is a touch on the negative side.  I'm sure many people get soured on MySQL
when they to a post here and get yelled at for not trying hard enough.  It sounds like
Mary is having a valid problem.  Her query works fast in one database and slow in the
other.  Because she did not come out and put her table schema and sql in the first email
is no reason to insult her.  I think a helping hand is a better approach.  Mabey a couple
general suggestions on MySQL tuning and a "We would need to see the schema and SQL
statement to help further".  I agree that it seems very strange that MS-SQL runs fater
than MySQL on a query.  Microsoft seems to always be plaiged with performance problems. 
Insulting someone will not help convert them to MySQL it will drive people away.

Anyway enough of my rant...

Serge.
