Ummmm... that's nice, but...

Is non RDBMS at the table too?

I assume no one knows how much RDBMS & non-RDBMS there is, but there's a ton of non-RDBMS... think flat files (of infinite variety), IMS, IDMS, ADABAS, M204, S2000, DatacomDB & on & on & on.

Obviously this legacy stuff isn't as popular as the au courant RDBMS, but there's a lot of it.

I've spoken to a n outfit that thinks they have 28 DBMS engines.  I could only count to 17.

Are they ignored or included?
