We agree, only I say moreso. :-)

Of course, Stevo said "My manager knows we need to hire a DBA but in the meantime I'm obliged to try and help." From my experience, that means the planning and regression testing is either ascribed too much cost (so put off until disaster) or short shrift (do with what insufficient resources you have, leading to pleas for help here). So, XE may not be the best way to train someone to be a DBA, but it can suggest some limited subset of problems that could quickly say "it might work" or "definitely will be a problem."
