    What other world?

The hypothetical world in which proprietary software does not exist
and therefore the company Oracle with its actual business model
does not exist either.

Someone else asserted that in this hypothetical world there would be
no data base equally good.  I and another explained how that
assumption is not valid.  In that hypothetical world, there might or
might not be an equally good free data base.

There is no need to go further down that tangent.
