The scary thing is that I've worked on RW production systems that bore a striking resemblance to a TPC benchmark system. As you can imagine, they uniformly belonged to BIG organizations (read: lot's 'o $$$) who were using the systems for mission critical stuff where either it was company existence threatening for the system to be done, or they would lose much $$$ per min of down time, or both.

Yeah, and that market is relevant to someone with one dell server and 2 hard disks how?
Because successful small companies that _start_ with one small server and 2 HDs grow to _become_ companies that need far more HW; ...and in the perfect world their SW scales to their increased needs...

_Without_ exponentially increasing their costs or overhead (as Oracle and DB2 currently do)

THIS is the real long term promise of OS DBMS.
