You'd have to be more specific than that. MS's terraserver
http://terraserver.homeadvisor.msn.com/default.asp is absolutely
fekkin' enormous but is read-only.

Consult http://www.oracle.com/ for a near-infinite, and often plausible
sounding collection of propaganda. And of course there's Oracle's
Million Dollar Challenge wherein they'll hand out $1m if they can't get
your MS/DB2/BEA site running at least 3x faster:

Ballsy, to say the least.

At the end of the day, the simple fact is that Windows 2000 crashes more
frequently than *n[ui]x does -- this surely is unquestioned fact.
Whether that costs the company less than hiring a useful Oracle DBA is
another matter...
