It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife!

I must appreciate the post by Aziz about Oracle. I am specifically refering to ...

Now I know why oracle guys are paid more because oracle is difficult because it is difficult to do small things in oracle easily. :).

This sentence is like a whole sea placed in a little box :)

Now a days I am again messing with Oracle in .NET. I will be soon sharing another list of problems.

Today in office we had a discussion about Oracle. People who were supporting Oracle were continuously insisting about fancy words like "Oracle is enterprise level solution"... "Oracle supports grid computing".. blah blah.. Well these are fancy words for DBA's but what good they are for me? Development for Oracle in .NET is really painful. After experiencing the flexible programming model of SQL Server, its like I am back in stone age. No doubt Oracle has improved itself, but WTH it takes to implement bool data type? Can anybody give me simple reason why they are not implementing this?

Now speaking about enterprise level solutions: do you really always needs fancy features offered by Oracle? I am sure out of 100 times you only need twice or thrice. Always using Oracle and considering it the ONLY so called "Enterprise Level Solution" is childish approach.
