Comparing SQL Server 2005 and Oracle


A few interesting whitepapers comparing SQL Server 2005 to Oracle (and particularly the use of RAC) have just been posted here http://www.microsoft.com/sql/prodinfo/compare/oracle/default.mspx


On a slightly different note (non-SQL Server), I am disappointed that PDF support is being pulled from Office 2007. I’ve been using this a lot in Beta 2 however I hear it might be included as a free download but not sure yet.  Brian has a good post about the reasons for removing PDF support http://blogs.msdn.com/brian_jones/archive/2006/06/02/613702.aspx. This is Adobe’s official response http://www.adobe.com/aboutadobe/pressroom/statement.html

    Thanks for the link.

    If you’re in touch with the page maintainer, perhape you could mention that "Oracle provides only basic security in its all its edition" doesn’t read too well?  (I’ve filled in the box at the bottom of the page but I’m not sure how often it’s checked)
