Subject Number of Boolean Clauses (AND vs OR)
Date Mon, 11 Apr 2011 18:50:28 GMT
Does the type of boolean clause matter for a good number of boolean clauses?
In other words, if I have a query with 20 boolean clauses, will 20 OR
clauses perform any faster or slower than 20 AND clauses? 

I know these would perform completely different queries, but I am asking on
a theoretical level. Obviously the total number matters, hence the limit of
1024 max boolean clauses
