NT4 was what, 10 years ago+ ? Check back to my reply to Denial Again Morgan for my thoughts on that OS.

Because the competitor used stuff, undocumented stuff, they weren't suppose to.

What, you mean Windows Updates? From my experience since they introduced Windows Updates for Windows 2000 and 2003 not that many.

Most sys admins spend time on networking problems and the like.

Do you have figures to back up your statement (url please) or is it, yet again, another myth?

Don't care; I'm not here to defened MS; I'm here to correct the crap you and DA post about stuff you don't want to accept.

More myth spreading rubbish, do you not realise people can research using the internet now?

From Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) version 2.5 and later versions, both the Microsoft ODBC Driver and OLE DB Provider support Oracle 8i with the following limitations: . Oracle 8.x-specific data types, such as CLOB, BLOB, BFILE, NCHAR, NCLOB, and NVARCHAR2, are not supported. . The Unicode feature against Oracle 7.x and 8.x servers is not supported. . Multiple Oracle client instances, or multiple Oracle homes, are not supported because they rely on the first occurrence of the Oracle home in the SYSTEM PATH variable.
. Returning multiple resultsets from a stored procedure or batch SQL statement is not supported using ADO or OLEDB. For additional information about how to retrieve a resultset from an Oracle stored procedure, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

No, if I see a post that mentions a technology I am knowledable in and disagree with a reply I will post a response - that my dear pal is called freedom of speech.

I don't bash oracle, I readdress the rubbish specific to what you or Denial Again Morgan has posted - get used to it or stop posting myths etc...

I have a balanced business view with the overriding concern for my client making money and staying in business and also having the competitve edge over their competition.

I'm not trying to convert anybody to any doctrine, like I've stated several times already, when I see something I disagree with or know is not true I will post a response - that is freedom of speech, I realise you don't like that concept but get used to it.

Nope - don't care; you do and use whatever technolgies you feel confortable with.
