Interesting, "We" in the SQL Server usenet group treat people with respect unless they don't deserve it and you can count them on one hand, I notice it's just you and sybrand that have an unprofessional bully attitude on this forum.

Other people as well as myself notice just how rude, arrogant and condecending you and sybrand are too people who post to c.o.s.

I also think it's highly unprofessional for somebody (you) to post a product comparison that is so far from accurate and so full of mistakes and when people who are recognised product experts in the SQL Server field (whether you like it or not) point out the faults you provide a kidified response and put your head in the sand - very unprofessional, very childish and speaks volumes for the type of person you are and the obvious biased approach you take to the database field in general, no wonder you can only get a job in education, nobody in industry would touch you.

Yes, and some people just don't learn or accept reality is reality even when shown a reference.
