The eServer i5 Versus Unix Servers
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Say what you will about Larry Ellison and the Oracle database company he founded, but they know how to compete and are not afraid to bloody their knuckles in competitive fights with IBM and Microsoft in the relational database market, which Oracle, along with IBM, created back in the late 1970s.

As I See It: The Access Disconnect
