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.

I'll leave it where it is then. It's about to die as "off-topic", which is probably the most appropriate fate. – Mark Henderson Mar 13 '11 at 22:05
