The Real Reason Why Oracle Costs So Much

Now, Billy Joel is one of my all-time favorite pop musicians. I saw him in concert and nosebleed seats at the Boston Garden cost me USD $100 per ticket, and I bought 4 tickets (my twin brother is a die-hard Billy Joel fan, they were a holiday surprise 2 years ago!)

Billy Joel regularly sells out sports arenas. I can only imagine how much Oracle paid to have a concert with him.

And don’t get me wrong, the rest of the list is also stellar. Which only adds to my disbelief.

MySQL shows customer appreciation by not grossly overcharging.

MySQL: Because you’re smart enough to buy your own damn concert tickets.
