    What is there to administer any more? Older versions of SQL required a lot of administration. These new versions, practically set them and go.

    Well according to review, one star because they want to charge him/her $38 instead of free so you could be in for a ride. S/he could has click when the promotion over but i wouldn't know without the reviewer further elaboration.

    Sorry, but you don't seem to know what you are talking about. Serious DB installations with massive data and high traffic do require plenty of work to keep the lights on.
