Apparently you've missed the fact that SQL Server 2008 will be sold as "Certified by Oracle" as the result of Microsoft's agreement to duplicate Oracle database functionality. First IBM did it with DB2. Now Microsoft is following suit.

All spreadsheets must read Excel format to be marketable. All word processors must read Word format to be marketable. All databases must comply with Oracle's RDBMS functionality. The database war is over.
