Thanks for the posting. I'll go take a look. :-)

I still (recently) hear management say that more-and-more MS SQL
Server is being installed at their companies. These guys are looking
only at the license costs, and MS is bundling SQL Server with many of
their products and configurations.

These same guys say Oracle is too expensive. Oh well, at least there
are Open Source databases.

No way I'd rely on MS vaporware, especially with their DB track
record. But, its easy enough not to worry about the marketing lies.
And, remember, 50-120$/hr DBA consultants don't care where they do the
work. ;-)
