I'm not a big fan of MySQL nor have I ever used Oracle or MS SQL server.
I actually use PostgreSQL and I think pound for pound, it competes but I
am not a real db tech.

What was the point here?
Oracle runs on Red Hat, runs on Windows.
PostgreSQL runs on UNIX/Linux/Windows.

probably for those who use it and probably not for those who disdain it.
I would submit that there are a lot of knowledgeable people that
consider Windows insufficient for enterprise. Opinions are like
rectums...everybody's got one. Same goes for TCO studies.

yum install freedatacenter...I like the sound of that. From the looks of
it...yum install freedatacenter is not something you will ever be able
to do on a Windows platform.
