Totally valid. Thanks for sharing. That said, considering all the work that has gone into developing Linux (and related projects), even $60M feels like a relatively small amount.
I hear you. But worth considering that what some people really need is millions of values per second, which if you have 20 values/row, is just 50k rows/second. It’s a distinction often lost in the relational vs non-relational discussion.
This post is partially in response to all the “anti-SQL” blog posts / articles that seem to proliferate on the web. But I would agree, the death of SQL has perhaps been overstated by the blogs/press.
Also appreciate the comment on the GIFs. We had an internal debate on them as well. :) Thanks for the feedback!
