PHP / ODBC / d/b win & LInux

P: n/a
OK, PHP newbie here, did a search, but I can't see the forest for
the trees now. I need a sanity check to see if I've got this right.
Short answers will do fine.

1. PHP includes a native ODBC module that is available without any
extra installs i.e. it's always there, correct ?

2. I can use PHP on the MS-windows platform to access any ODBC
compliant d/b that there is a driver for, correct ?

3. I need to make sure there's some sort of basic ODBC support
installed on Linux machines such as's module if I want
to move my development to Linux, correct ?

4. Is there an ODBC interface that is more popular than iODBC with
the Linux hosting crowd ?

5. Is ODBC the recommended way to go for PHP to d/b access or is there
a more native PHP method that folks like to use ?
