Does "Highly Evolved" mean "Highly Complicated" as well as "Highly Priced" and "High 
Maintenance Cost"?

  PICK is LEGACY Technology and does NOT Support alot of advanced
  level computing we have today. I belive PICK is Similiar to Legacy DB2
  that used ISAM type of DataBases Access. Even IBM has moved DB2 (Now UDB)
  to a completly relational architecture.
  I belive some of the below are good reasons to Migrate to 
  MainStream (Top 3 - DB2/Oracle/MSSQL etc) Databases.
  1. UV has Little/NO support for Emerging Technologies(XML/XQuery/XSLT/WML etc)
  2. UV is Not supported in Most Integration Enterprise Software (SAP/PeopleSoft)
  3. UV is Not efficient compared to highly evolved databases(DB2/Oracle)
  4. UV Folks seem to use PICK, which is Not Compatible with many of
     of the Current Advanced Technologies and Techniques. 
  5. UV is very SLOW, TOO Procedural and Not the right tool for
      an OLTP Environment.
  It would be nice if IBM provided a Package to convert all UV Stuff to
  IBM DB2 and perhaps provide some kinda code converter to convert
  all pick stuff to DB2 Stored Procs or Java Native Compiled Procedures.
  I belive this would be ideal and would help corportations intergrate
  systems easily.

  As the list is closing this is probably not off topic - so I will comment.

  I believe PICK has been around since the mid to late 1960's, whereas Oracle
  and the SQL relation model has been around only since the mid to late 1970's
  early 1980's if you are talking about Oracle etc.

  I may be wrong.

  Best of luck Jeff, however I will point out the obvious, what is your
  definition of modern? I would have thought the good old "relational
  databases" have been around since before pick anyway? 8-)

  Dear Friends:

  After 10+ years of either hosting or supporting the info-prime,
  info-unidata, info-vmark, info-informix, and u2-users etc lists, I have
  decided to shut down the list server.

  u2-users and u2-community will cease to exist as of 1 April 2004. IBM is

  officially supporting the efforts of the new group. (Yes. I am
  a member of the establishing Board of that group. So this is not a
  "coup" or Sour Grapes!) If you check out the forums that have been set
  up, I think you will will see that they cover everything anyone has
  asked for over the years in this group.

  I *really* want to encourage ALL of you to come over the the site and support this effort. This is *exactly* what many
  of you on this list have wanted over the years. If Not Now, When?

  Almost ten years on my Watch. How many years before that on Mike
  O'Rear's Watch? In the Net World, this has been a Hell of a good run. (I

  just couldn't resist tripping the Net Nanny filters one last time <very
  evil grin>)

  I'll see all of you on the other media, ok?
