Great article but I think there needs to be a sequel, er... I mean Part Two that covers the 1990's. Especially some history on the relationship between Sybase and Microsoft in the early days of SQL Server.

Good article, one for the trivia buffs

I'd also like to see Part Two, but it should cover the variations offered by different vendors. Might be a little harder to pull together

Hi cppwiz, hi phillcart,

are you mind-readers?

Btw, I think I have read something of a company called Sybase, but I can't really remember right now

Anyway, something in this direction is already planned and in the pipeline.

if you ask me this way???

Nothing but a stupid number crunching on this years' forecast and next years' planning and estimating where stock markets will end this year (and usually be totally wrong, that's why I need to work anyway) and integrating this estimation into the forecast and the planning and estimating.....

SNAFU !!!!!!

There are some nice comments, in addition to yours, in a paper called

I will say, I'll answer this very carefully.
AFAIK GRID computing is like having a single, large virtual computer.
I'm really not sure what to think of this whole 'unifying thing', although the intention is honorable.

Btw, the only source I found where it is mentioned why SEQUEL/2 had to be renamed.
