Comment: Re:Better than PostgreSQL? (Score 5, Informative) 386

by conejoloco (#10198988) Attached to: Sybase Releases Free Enterprise Database on Linux
I have worked with both a few years ago (migration from Postgres 6 to Sybase 11) and sybase performance was outstanding, compared to Postgresql.
I hope postgresql performs better now.

Moreover, this is not the first time Sybase makes this offer : Sybase for Linux 11.0.3 was free to use on Linux, with no limitation.

I personnaly used it for my Web shop, as this database is not only fast and secure, but also quite easy to program with ( especially compared to Oracle ).

The only drawback of Sybase is the lack of standard administration Tools. You have to use a product like (overpriced and windows-only) Emabarcadero DBArtisan.

The best way to accelerate a Macintoy is at 9.8 meters per second per second.

Working...
