Open Source vs. the Database Vendors - on slashdot

"BusinessWeek has another spread on open source this week. Among them is an article about open source vs. the database vendors
which focused on how businesses are looking to save money with open
source (rather than using the source to innovate). From the article:
"The databases work fine, but as data volume grows, so do the checks to
Oracle, IBM, or Microsoft. Many users aren't clamoring for more
features, and some don't even use the bells and whistles they already
paid for. They would happily trade some to get their hands on the
source code and a better deal."
