Dave has "enlightened" us before, and all I have seen him ever write
is that a "real" DB only has tables and not files, only partitions and
not members. The fact that DB2/400 has other access methods he sees as
a fault and not a benefit. He can't see the forest for the trees. He
has yet to convince me that the only "real" difference is the
background that DB2/400 came from.

Why don't you enlighten us to what we lack so we don't need to wander in the
wilderness of inadequate RDBMS systems? Sounds like you have a lot of
information to offer us that we don't know about. All I am looking for is
the highlights...
