    no. sql server or/and oracle are better. and lots of db2 jobs got outsourced to India,China and Brazil.

    Talking Oh, DB2 !

    DB2 is the great Data Base ! You'll like it if you'll survive.

    With DB2 you can do everything what do you want and something you don't want.

    For example you can count number of letters in sentence ' Welcome DB2 2011 !'....

    I like DB2 for similar reasons. DB2 has much more logical thinking (commands ) and stable intentions ( foundation ) . Best of all it has full faith in OS.

    I started with oracle , switched to DB2 within a year.
