Certified Oracle DBAs are very happy with their installs - they
provide them 8 hours of "tuning" work per day and virtually assure
years of "productive" employment for said DBAs. *grin*
Seriously, sometimes it feels as though they make it more difficult
than it needs to be simply to feel more "enterprise-y" so that
purchasing agents and IT managers get warm fuzzies whenever they think
about their prized Oracle installs.
Meanwhile, my engineers all use MySQL and get real work done. *chuckle*
