first hand 第一手, 閱歷

My dear friends, I have used both MYSQL and MSSQL to build database driven websites, and I have to say, MYSQL is remarkably faster than MSSQL. For example (for those of you who have not had the chance to try them both) a standard page that loads a data recordset of say 1,000 records will take around 4 seconds to load when using MSSQL while it takes 1 second to load in MYSQL. Not that is what I call PERFORMANCE.
I still use MSSQL for other applications though because of its failsafe/recovery features.
I bet Mr Bounce from Message #3 on this forum has probably not experienced it first hand.
