Re: Why is important to acquire sqlserver and other competitor's products, if you like oracle?

Thank you for your reply.
I owe a better explanation.

This comment has a good basement, it started in the presentation Oracle gave
comparing sql server 2005 and Oracle, really they put sql server in the
floor and I didn't found they exaggerated, for example Oracle's
presenter explained visual studio developers choose Oracle as easier to use,
sql server users have the option to pay 25% of the price per year and save
some money
