BTW Daniel there is one thing with your excellent comparison paper - SQL Server 2005 of course doesn't have Hierarchical queries in form of start with ..connect by, but recursive queries can be performed using common table expressions (in oracle world these are called subquery factoring or WITH clause). So in general recursive queries are available also in SQL Server just with different mechanism. And I've also looked a bit in SQL Server 2008. It has quite nice Merge statement wich it seems works smarter than Oracle Merge (for example does only delete and not at first update and then delete).
