Actually, the only other story that comes immediately to mind of a PostgreSQL vs. Oracle comparison is this one: http://www.enterprisedb.com/about/news_events/press_releases/06_27_07.do . . . so, in my experience at least, stories to the contrary are pretty hard to find. Of course, that seems to be more about PostgreSQL vs. Oracle than FreeBSD vs. MS Windows. -- Chad Perrin [ content licensed PDL: http://pdl.apotheon.org ] Quoth Thomas McCauley: "The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out."
