Is DB support robust under Windows?

Hello to everyone,

the web app I'm starting to make must run under windows too. Before it'll be
too late, I'd like to know whether the php support to Oracle and SQLServer
is robust.

Also, does anyone have tried Logicreate? Any opinion about this cms under
windows? (and about this cms in general...)

Many thanks,
Enrico

Couple of notes:

mysql runs fine under Windows.

If you want support for a broad base of dbís, then create a "sql
abstraction layer" (search for it on google). That way, your script
will work with many dbís. This is necessary since php implements some
pretty specific calls to mysql, and if they are used, then the script
is very mysql-specific.

I use SQLServer with PHP and I can say that it's very stable. The only
problem is the inability to retrieve varchar wider than 255 characters.
