MySQL vs SQL Server?

P: n/a
Hey there,

I'm curious about MySQL. Could anyone quickly summarize the
differences between MySQL and SQL Server and outline why someone might
pick SQL Server over MySQL?

Zach, pretty good list of things you have to know if you work in mySQL
especially if you work in a different rdbms such as SQL Server or
Oracle also.
