More wrong than right and a lot of gaps. What's more interesting (read the
commentaries) is the "bending" of interpretation of features to make it
seem that MySQL is the answer to everyone's prayers. :-) Still, maybe
MySQL is the only dbms he's ever had his hands on and he's really sincere.

It's a competely anonymous site, and the "Feel free to send me your
comments" link points to NOMAIL.

Comparison charts are pretty odious unless they're well researched. Even
then, it's hard to find one without a medium-to-rare bias toward whoever
paid for it.
