SQL Server has the SQL Team website! Of course if you're reading this you already know that.

None of the other RDBMS products have similar Team sites (Oracle, DB2, PostGres, Sybase, mySQL, you get the idea).

Seriously, there is no single unique feature that SQL Server has that others don't. One particular "feature" is that it only runs on one operating system platform, Microsoft Windows. I don't know why a single unique feature matters, and it certainly isn't worth basing any decision to use this (or any) software product on something like that.

Probably the best way to find out what SQL Server offers to to browse through Books Online, escpecially the What's New section. It will list all of the enhancements made from previous versions of SQL Server. The rest of Books Online will detail all of its features.

I do not agree with rovolk about other databases do not have site like this one, Well Oracle does have site called Dbasupport.com, dbascript.com, and also othet vendors have the forum like this one as well from UNIX to Datawarehousing you name it and you will find the forum.

Well rob you beat me to it, but I will add that there is also no DB2Team.com, PostGresTeam.com, SybaseTeam.com, mySQLTeam.com, or InformixTeam.com.

And even if there were, where else can you find enlightening SQL information rendered as poetry:

Or breaking news on world events, told in humorous fashion:

I'll tell ya, I haven't seen any other site on the web that devoted as much coverage to the equal sign shortage.... And then of course there is our #1 topic on SQL Team:

And I think we'd all like to see a beer emoticon. Hmm. I think I can figure out how to do that. Hold on!

Hey. Actually, I got it working on a local version of the snitz code we had here. We'll see if Graz buys into it. I had a good programming day. Volks text question took me about 6 hours to figure out.
