The name of MS SQL Server
Posted on 2004-03-26
I'm having a huge discussion with a couple of friends about the name of MS SQL Server.
They pronounce the name "sequel server", while I say more like "es-cue-el server".
I mean that SQL is short for "Structured Query Language", and har nothing to do with "sequel". So I say "Es-Cue-El Server" (sort of).
The others says : "my boss says it and I've heard powerful people in Microsoft saying Sequel Server, so that 's the way it is".
Are there some kind of answer here?
