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

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