Antwort: [DB2-L] AW: [DB2-L] DB2 9 - It's Not a Gas
because V is 5 and X is 10 it could be taken as DB2 15 (Or if you really
remember your Roman numeracy rules 5!) which is not what is intended!!

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?

Re: AW: [DB2-L] DB2 9 - It's Not a Gas

I like it, but one step further:

I'm guessing they could have prevented all past and future issues by using hex: DB2 x'08', DB2 x'09', DB2 x'0a', etc.

Walter,

That is why you should keep German clean and not let all those English
phrases and words slip in. My father would be most upset if you said Dee Bee
Two Nein instead of Deh Beh Zwei Neun.

VX is often referred to as VX gas. It was World War II chemical agent that is
quite unpleasant and nowadays illegal.

VX nerve agent is a nasty product and its use is banned. It was not
used in WWII, however. It was developed, in the UK, in the early 1950s.
