This series started with the pie chart, a useful tool that graphically summarizes data. However, pie charts only provide a "snapshot" of a moment. This tip focuses on bar charts, which show the data's evolution.

In the previous TechTip, I provided an example of a pie chart similar to the one below, which shows, with a little humor, the most common uses of cell phones:

IBM i has DB2 built into the OS, but when you install AIX, you have to go shopping for a database. According to IBM, many AIX users have opted for Oracle. Presumably, this is because the applications they wish to run—such as an ERP solution—are designed to run on Oracle. One could also choose to run DB2 on AIX instead of Oracle. However, there is another choice that might be even more appealing, and that is Informix. You can download, install, and run a robust production version for free.
