I am interrested in finding out what you folks mean by usability and
refinement. How do you measure it? These seem to me to be unmeasurable
hackneyed terms with little intrinsic meaning!
Yep you are absolutely right. That is what press releases are all about.
So could you say
something like: the New Postgresql, version 8.2, building on its
reputation of sheer power and ACID compliance, now implements feature 1,
which provides benefit 1, plus feature 2, which leads to benefit 2,
plus .... etc. thereby maximizing overall ease of use. ??
WE tend to speak of features, now is a good time to speak of benefits to
the dba, benefits for upgrading to an existing project, etc.
If they don't know by reading the terms, then they will want to buy
reading the 50 cent, fancy words.
Postgresql 8,2 will increase speed of response by x %, ad hoc queries
will be x % faster, etc. I know I am being simplistic, but the benefits
need to blurt out, and be immediately recognizable as such to the
majority of players. JMUETCW. Michael
Percentages never work because it depends on a specific work load,
specific design, specific hardware etc...
