Both Oracle and Sybase can throw away 100% of their code bases and that would be irrelevant to the point I am making. What has been recoded still uses the same read consistency model, transaction architecture, the same locking model: Nor has the verbiage changed.

If you have specific facts that you can point to that show, for example undo/rollback segments in SQL Server, I am sure we would all be interested.

PS: Disappointing you is not one of the criteria I use when deciding what to post.
