Given a committment to development in VB5/6, which would be the better database server to use, and why?  The typical use would be for applications with 50-100 users, and occasional access necessary via a WAN.  Client currently has a Netware 4.xx system going with Win 95 workstations.  If I left out any critical variables, please let me know and I'll fill in whatever blanks I can.

If there is any documentation that's been done comparing the two, it'd be great to know where it is.

Thanks!

So Oracle is easier to maintain?  What about performance and cost issues?

Same thing over here ..

For a compare of the different Sql-Servers:
http://ntsolutions.oracle.com/html/BRG_wp.htm
This document is a very nice piece of work .. It's an oracle document.. ok .. BUT!! it's a correct document ..
One notice about it ...
Don't only look at the result values .. also take good look at the detail-information .. this way, you'll get a global idee of cost and performance.

Have fun reading ..
