Well, in the "real world" we run numerous applications because we have numerous LOBs.
And when the developers of the software (that the LOB wants) says "we only support db 'x'"... get on with it.
We're not big enough to "force" the developers to port their applications, just for us.
We're not rich enough to develop all of our own apps.

So, like many (most) IT organizations, you have to ignore the idealists and Utopian views, and just serve the business.

Comments like "real SQL server" are unconstructive at best.

+ - IEEE Spectrum Ranks The Top Programming Languages->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Working with computational journalist Nick Diakopoulos, we at IEEE Spectrum have published an app that ranks the popularity of dozens of programming languages. Because different fields have different interests (what's popular with programmers writing embedded code versus what's hot with web developers isn't going to be identical) we tried to make the ranking system as transparent as possible—you can use our presets or you can go in and create your own customized ranking by adjusting the individual weightings of the various data sources we mined.--Stephen "FTC obDisclosure" Cass."

I'll tell you where to start.

Years back, teen pregnancy was very rare. A handful in a state.

Bullshit. It was prolific. Were you born last year?

I know, I was poor. I was unemployed and the 'case workers' at the unemployment office actually told me NOT to look for work and they would 'take care of me.

This stinks as much as the rest of your story. Again, I call bullshit.

Never ask two questions in a business letter. The reply will discuss the one you are least interested, and say nothing about the other.
