I'm not sure being cheaper than Oracle can really be touted as an advantage, 
there aren't many things out there that are more expensive than oracle =D.  And 
all of those things you just mentioned are also true of many FREE databases, so 
again, why pick U2?

You may have answered your own question.  Why do YOU like it?

It is easy to develop, quick to code, fairly robust query language, and a lot 
cheaper than the BIG databases (Oracle, DB2, etc).

I have come to like U2 over the past few years but an honest question:

Why would anyone ever pick U2 beyond familiarity and personal preference?  Can 
anyone think of any situation that another (and in a lot of cases a *far* 
cheaper) database isn't a better fit?

Maybe if U2 had it's own niche like MySQL has with web hosting, there would be 
a market Rocket could focus on ?
