Hi Ross

>From you previous posts to the lists you seems to be a guy with the great
sense of humour that's why I always read your posts - very often they are very funny.
The first one about TPC-C marks was really good and made me laughing.

But after 10 times even the brilliant joke becomes boring.

If you argue not just to argue and if you do really support M$ solution and prefer in to Oracle/UNIX would you be able to provide more references and facts than this ridiculous advertising site that could be useful only for people that do not have time/wish/knowledge for research but like flashy charts and tables ( unfortunately these people very often take a decision)

With regards
