RE: DB2 9.7 - Oracle Compatibility

I think the real winner here is EnterpriseDB, who licensed their tech to IBM, possibly as part of IBM's investment in the company.
The reality is that Oracle DBAs won't want to support DB2 even if it has Oracle compatibility, and like the article says, organizations with COTS products won't want to risk losing support from the vendor.
