I agree that we don't have to have a majority of the market to be 
"successful."  However, there is a very accurate adage in both business and 
politics:  "If you're not growing, you're shrinking."

We need to continue to grow, not necessarily to take over the market, but to 
make sure that we don't disappear entirely.    I don't want to be the 
"betamax of databases".
