Dear Microsoft Press Writers,
As a long time user of your database products, I find myself becoming increasingly aggravated by the utter nonsense that your press releases state.
Specifically, the utter lack of knowledge of the theory that underpins your enterprise database engine.
Considering that you are increasingly trying to compete in the VLDB space against Oracle and DB2, it is imperative that no ignorance is shown when it comes to the relational model.
The men and women who manage these VLDB environments will have the “ear” of CTO’s and CIO’s. These people are usually well versed in the relational model and can spot bullshit from a mile away.
Unfortunately, your current press releases pertaining to Katmai, showed enough ignorance to be spotted by the Huygens probe currently buried under the surface of the moon Titan.
The offending text is as follows.
Beyond Relational Data
Manage any type of data including relational data, documents, geographic information and XML
