Comment Maybe it is a step backwards, but I use it a lot.. (Score 1) 157

...at work. We use it to aggregate millions of dumped events every day, and while it may be missing features that are common in RDBMSes or use brute force rather than special magic, the fact is that we can point it at a cluster of machines and get aggregated stuff out with a lot less computational overhead than if we used anything else. It's not an RDBMS, and we don't use it as one, and therefore don't give a rat's ass if it's any good as one -- it does one thing, and it does it at a good price/scalability/performance/modifiability/ease-of-use multiratio. (And at the risk of being redundant: Photoshop is a crap word-processor, but the problem there isn't Photoshop, it's the fucktard who uses it to write letters.)
