I have a lot of comments about Oracle's performance.

But without a large number of clarifications, even superficials ones such as hardware, operating system, OLTP vs DW, it is all just marketing fluff. There are no generic answers. One can drive a Ferrari at 5mph and one can drive a Yugo at 70-80. Does that make a Yugo faster?

As to your question about a matrix ... what matrix? Ask an unqualified open ended question about a highly technical subject and you get back a chuckle. Were you not obviously a student it could have been fare more pointed. <g>
