    [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-2.gif' alt=':D' />] nice! I particularly like this statement near the end :<br />'the best is ORACLE as it is platform dependant and can run in UNIX and windows. whereas SQL only can run in windows.' (there is no reference to SQL Server, just SQL)<br /><br />'I reject your reality and substitute my own' - Adam Savage

    WTF is a new database platform. It's a pretty strong competitor with SQL and also....only runs in Windows. You have to buy stained glass though.

    Luis, <br />if you had asked me this question some years ago, I would have answered "World Taekwondo Federation" immediately, but now...<br />Have a look here:<a target="_blank" href=http://www.acronymfinder.com/af-query.asp?Acronym=wtf&Find=find&string=exact>http://www.acronymfinder.com/af-query.asp?Acronym=wtf&Find=find&string=exact</a><br /><br />Btw, Derrick, you're wrong. WTF is a Top-Secret project at Microsoft to bring ETL, DTS (and SSIS) under one hood and give them a common, easy to remember name.

    Windows Transformation Framework. I would give a whooping WTF! to that. Though I wouldn't be surprised since WPF and WWF have already become commonplace names at Microsoft.
