So what's your problem? I don't get the point you are making. You mentioned in your original posting:

  1. The test was done with the old SQL Server 4.x
  2. You think PC Mag people don't know anything about databases

When reading the article you can see that a) is untrue, it is SQL Server 10.

I personally think the Ziff-Davis people are generally very knowledgeable. They describe exactly how the test was conducted, and that experts from the individual vendors were on site and involved. Do you question the expertise of these people?
