    It's all nice and correct, but what does it have to do with kernel
    except the well known fact that sane kernel design, efficient development
    model and respect of open standards allowed mentioned database vendors to

    everywhere" FUD requires the answer to be sent to the mailing list where
    most of people know well enough (in part because of your, esr, efforts)
    how much do those claims worth.
