The problem is, this isn't a logical decision they are making. They are
only comfortable with Micro$oft and when I mention a database they haven't
heard of before, they cringe even though I have proven it's ability to serve
all their needs for the last year.
What it comes down to is that I need to SELL them on the idea of using
PostgreSQL or they may just take their business elsewhere just because I
don't use Microsoft. I think they may actually rather pay tens of thousands
of dollars more for that stamp from Borg Gates.
Are there good articles that compare the databases or talk about PostgreSQL
- I need to site good references.
