Ohh that is hitting below the belt!! Where's a moderator when you really need one!!!
Its true though, that is the closest analogy to people who are in the pay-for-software end of things. And even though MySQL and server have become synonymous .. it is still a database not a server. A MySQL server is one type of SQL (and probably the best type of it all); MySQL is an implementation of SQL (structured query language), to access a database.
And if you want an argument on whether Access is wimpy .. you know my stand on it
