Puff, huge lost for oracle, but the most important point here (for me) is that this will require to change your entire DBA team or give them a quick training on DB2. BTW, I have never used DB2 but, doesnt it only run on AIX and IBM boxes? I mean if you have Oracle running on Sun, HP or Win, you will have to change not only Oracle licenses.

Any comments on this event? I'd be less shocked if they said SQL Server. I did some DB2 work maybe 2 years ago. Not a product I was all that impressed with.,289142,sid41_gci1370485,00.html?track=NL-333&ad=729260&asrc=EM_NLN_9464382&uid=5340789#
