in reply to OT--Define enterprise please?

Enterprise database sales have got to be down and the db vendors have to tout their current sizzle to get some attention. Also, in August, when Sun released their first Linux server, they were in "Open Source Friendly Mode" (as well as anti-MS).

Plus, I wonder if InfoWorld is having a "slow news era." With very few changes (just the players), this article could be a template for almost any Open Source vs. Commercial Vendor piece.

The purpose of their article eludes me...

However, I left the article thinking the OS products got the better end of the coverage. ("just spell my name right, and often.") lol

    No duh! There's only one Enterprise. And it's on Wednesday nights on UPN.

    Mr. Muskrat just noticed Preceptors remark but doesn't want to change his own so hits submit.
