Couldn't agree more. It's a shame that Microsoft, Oracle, IBM's support for
their DB's
isn't as good, (and inexpensive!!) as MySQL's.

And if you truely believe that, would you be interested in this bridge I've
got for
sale ;-) ?!  The commercial databases will always have the the advantages
of better image to the damned bean-counters and a better feature set or
app support, (If you've standardised on M$ tools for building then -
surprise, surprise
- it's easier if you're using SQLServer as the backend). Don't
misunderstand me -
MySQL is great, (in fact the last place I used it, I couldn't have used
Oracle, DB2 - the technical requirements meant that it had to be either
MySQL or PostgreSQL).

>I for one will be glad to see those inflated price tags go.
Hear, hear - mind you with Larry E's guys it'd be nice to get a consistent
price, (three
different prices for the same piece of software in the space of 30 days!!)
