Yes, sounds better. Seriously: I absolutely agree that Oracle is not
inclined to make it easier to use their product - after all, as was
said, they sell courses and certifications, while pg tries to be easy to
use. I just got the impression from the first few messages that some
people think that pg has no secret tricks you're supposed to know at
all. Experience counts. With all systems. (And knowing the secret tricks
is what experience comes down to, basically).
