re:
http://www.garlic.com/~lynn/2009p.html#82 What would be a truly relational operating system ?

i handled some amount of the tech transfer from sjr (system/r) to endicott for sql/ds

one of the people listed as being at jan92 meeting in ellison's conference room ... mentioned here
http://www.garlic.com/~lynn/95.html#13

claimed to have handled the tech transfer from endicott back to STL for (mainframe) DB2. There are two different DB2s ... the original mainframe DB2 and the one running on other platforms. this is thread discussing some recent news item about the non-mainframe DB2 http://www.garlic.com/~lynn/2009p.html#43 From The Annals of Release No Sfotware Before Its Time http://www.garlic.com/~lynn/2009p.html#46 From The Annals of Release No Sfotware Before Its Time

the non-mainframe DB2 started out as RDBMS for OS2 ... it took quite a bit of work to get much further than that. http://www.garlic.com/~lynn/2009p.html#35 DB2 announces technology that trumps Oracle RAC and Exadata
