Re: Using Mysql as database system manager instead of postgresql for Odoo

I'm not afraid from anything. And I do not ask anybody to promote Odoo
or anything else.

What I say is, for example if I would meet a restaurant owner as a
potential customer and he would require that a proposed business
solution must be deployed on a 1 and 1 hosting, then I would try to
explain to him that this should no be an evaluation criterion and if I'm
not successful explaining that, then I would have failed as a consultant
or salesman. But I would for sure not try to make him another offer just
to satisfy such a requirement.

So I made no judgement about you, because I don't know you. I did judge
an attitude.

And I do sell an Odoo solution, because I do not sell the best
restaurant pos system nor the best accounting software nor the most
sophisticated website. I do sell an Odoo solution because it is a fully
integrated system saving my customers a lot of work, efforts and money
while offering all features necessary to stay competitive.

Nothing more, nothing less.
