Wouldn't it be advisable to point out that according to IBM there 60,000+ sites with over 4 million seats worldwide using their version of that funny dbms. That all their sales of that dbms are through VARS that produced over 40% of IBM's OEM channel business in 2002 (non-tier1 ISVs) and growing.

Jeeze, take a cheap shot, why don't you. :-)

I don't believe just because GM has a larger worldwide market share than Honda, that's prima facie evidence they're cheaper cars to operate.
