I work with DB2 on UNIX, Linux and Windows. It would be nice if instead of having to buy three books there were just three chapters (or even sections where relevant) about the differences of DB2 on the different platforms. They certainly have more in common than their differences.As my five person team also works with MS SQL Server and Oracle, we each have db platforms with which we are more familiar. A section of a book, or even a single book which details differences between the three would be invaluable.

Thanks for your comment. Most of our books currently cover DB2 on UNIX, Linux, and Windows together, and I'll take your comments seriously when planning for the next version of DB2.One of the posts I was planning was to cover all the information that I know of that covers DB2 as well as Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle. Stay tuned.susan

Theron Knapp, I may have misunderstood your suggestion. I wasn't sure if you meant that you need information to compare DB2, Oracle and MS Server or information that compares DB2 on the platforms UNIX, Linux, and Windows.I answered as if you meant the first option: compare DB2 to Oracle to MS Server. I'm working on a post now with the help of an expert on migrations between platforms. When working with her, I showed her your comment and she insists you meant that you need information that compares DB2 on the supported platforms.If this is the case, the answer is pretty easy. There are so FEW differences between DB2 on UNIX, Linux and Windows that it would make a very chapter in a book. Rather, if there are differences, it is usually stated at the place where the difference occurs. I can see if I can find out more for you if you like.Susan
