Nope. Just that those 2 companies own the 2 best, free database engines, and Oracle is one of the most expensive databases on the market.

I'd have thought this would have qualified for antitrust investigation.

I hear DB2 is cheaper, but still in the same ballpark.

I just hope they renew with MySQL. I REALLy don't want to have to pay for a decent transactional DB. Though, I've taken to shutting down mysql for backups, I COULD go back to MyISAm. Bleh.

*nod* I'm just stuck in my rut. I don't want to have to export/import because that would require me to have skill. :)

So, hey, let's you and me write our own DB.

Though, as I've explored the concept in my head and in notes, it seems that there are alot of contingencies and such to monkey with to keep things safe and performing well.
