So the Real story Is….

As many of you heard ( see Kevin’s post  http://sqlblog.com/blogs/kevin_kline/archive/2009/05/06/microsoft-marketing-throws-sql-server-under-the-bus.aspx ) MS marketing released a comment last week that indicated SQL Server couldn’t handle the load for the Win 7 downloads. But it appears that reality sets in and we get a much different story according to the SQL CAT team. Have a look here:

It’s truly amazing how fast people are to blame SQL Server for lack of performance when they don’t have a handle on their environment in the first place :).

In the manual "Sales 101" the first keyword is : Self-confidence :))

Andrew,

I wanted to know if SQL replication software will be able to synchronize an access and visual basic based software in two or more locations? Thank you.
