in reply to Database of choice

I griped and complained when they made me learn SQL 2000. For 2 years I found about 80% of my work life devoted to using DB2. But if I have to pay for a database, or I'm being paid to *Like* a database, I've gotta say that SQL 2000 is less painful than DB2. Damn shame there's no *NIX port. It's pretty robust. More than I would have believed on anecdotal evidence alone. I like working with it.
