Quite a while back I had to write some trivial .Net code to pull some data out of oracle. It turned out to be quite a mission, I had to install something like 200mb of database drivers and edit numerous text configuration files just to establish a connection.



Anyway, I mentioned to a workmate my disbelief at how complicated such a simple task had become.



He just nodded sagely, and said "You know why oracle is like an onion?"



I asked him why

Q: How many Oracle DBAs does it take to change a light bulb ?

A: Three - it takes three Oracle DBAs to do anything.



Q: How many SQL Server DBAs does it take to change a light bulb ?

A: None - SQL Server automatically changes light bulbs.
