So could someone give a good "Boss Answer" for what a relational database is? And maybe how its different than just storing data on a file server?

Does this belong on DBA or not?


Hhm. Looking at the upvoted answers at SF. I would none of them describe as 'Boss Answer'. All of them involve too much technical details.

I'm not sure if we here could express it in a more suited way.

I think this question could be assigned with equal right to SO, SF or DBA. It is borderline in any case.
