Database Sub-Forum
Can we get a database specific forum area

I think lots of Linux users are also programmers or Data Admin's so would it be logical to add a Database Sub-Forum for any ANSI SQL / PostgreSQL / Oracle / MySQL / DB2 / NoSQL help? Not directly related to Linux so I can see the lack there of however it runs and comes on damn near every OS I've used. Thoughts?

I think the Programming forum is suited for that.

Yeah, relational database theory is dead anyways. It's all about letting programmers make object-oriented databases with GUIDs and try/end-try block procs and crap like that nowadays. Gone are the days of keeping interface and database design seperate. It now takes 10 joins to do what used to take two (or none) with natural keys.

The entire RDBMS field is completely fooked up quite frankly...

I don't agree but given your username...I wont try to LOL.

Thanks. I will use the programming section of the forum. RDBMS will be here for a very very long time my friend!

Thanks for the feedback. At this time the programming forum is the best place for database-related questions. If there's sufficient demand in the future, we'd certainly consider adding a related site to TQN.
