I don't play games with numbers. You've got 'em so post 'em. Sure there is SAP on DB2 and SQL Server but they are a small fraction of the installed base.

The war is over. There were three battles:

Databases:    1 = Oracle, 2 = Microsoft
App Servers:  1 = Oracle, 2 = IBM
Applications: 1 = SAP,    2 = Oracle

Do you see a trend here?

Microsoft has one piece out of three, IBM one out of three, SAP one out of three. You've been surrounded.

And we've still not seen the result of SAP's admitted theft of Oracle's intellectual property.
