Subject New query language
Date Fri, 07 Apr 2006 03:24:59 GMT

SQL has a lot of problems; it is incomplete, unfriendly, unsound, too
huge, confusing, inconsistent, etc. [1, 2, 3]  It is the more ugly
language that I ever see.

For many reasons, it seems that no DBMS vendor is interested to create
a better language.  So my question: why don't we - the open source
community - take the lead and create a new language that could be the
basis for a future standard?
