You can repeat whatever crap opinions (rising out of ignorance) you have about Oracle ad nauseam, that doesn't make them true. Do you really think you do you Steve or Bill (by whom you have been truly enslaved) a service to promote the toy database of the 20st and the 21st century by slamming Oracle.
Heck, any version of Windows has been unscalable by design, and Mickeysoft still requires vendor lock-in. Could you please come back only when your toy database, and especially YOU have grown up, so you can point to advantages instead of just trolling and slamming Oracle.

Thanking you, and now please back to the garbage bin where you belong in the first place.
