Stefan, lets talk about obscene language. As you know, obscene language is not always the same. The phrase "zum Donnerwetter" can and will be understood as swearing, despite the fact that it's utterly incomprehensible to me why would someone use bad weather as a swearing phrase.
Two obscene words in Redmond, WA are "compatible" and "standards", which are used much in the same way as the phrase "zum Donnerwetter" is used in German language. You should know that .NET is incompatibility elevated to the level of art. Did you really expect MS product to be compatible withe anything else except with another MS product? MS products are not compatible, they are .NET compatible or contemptible, for short. Your question should be rephrased as: how can anybody realistically expect .NET provider to be compatible with a non-MS database like Oracle?
