Won't be hard. Oracle will consume themselves from within and end up finding themselves with no foundations on which to continue to support Larry's Ego.

Typical of Microsoft...

...sorry. I need to stop that now.

In the whole history of business, a small upstart taking on an incumbent behemoth has never, ever succeeded.

MongoDB ... never by choice

It's terrible. Awful querying. Atrocious performance. Terrible tooling.

And no, I'm not offering evidence to back it up. It's my own experience (at enterprise level), so feel free to either dismiss me or accept it as an anecdote - I don't care which, I just want to be clear that not everyone mistakes their well-marketed amateurism as a marvel of engineering.

Re: MongoDB ... never by choice

I think it's easy to use, for one thing. That's using Mongoose, from Node.JS and only if you almost never query on anything but ID. That's very specific, I know.
