[DB2-L] DB2 9 - It's Not a Gas
Jorg

Can you explain, why VX is an unfortunate name?
In Germany DB2 9 is a unfortunate name, because it sounds like: "DB2 no"

DB2 went from V8 to just plain 9.
I think because they didn't want the upcoming version to have the unfortunate name of DB2 VX. Now they can just be cool with DB2 X. Will Professor X finally switch from Oracle?
