"M$ SQL is wayyyy behind! (first, you have to run it on windows hence the lack of reliability)"

LOL - you must be a dated relic from the dying world of midrange UNIX. MS SQL is now the worlds most popular database by number of users and is so far in front of Postgres you would need a telescope as a rear view mirror to see it behind you as an MS SQL user.

Only truly niche requirements would use PostGres instead. MS SQL is vastly more secure, has far more advanced features, is far more stable, has better clustering and replication, scales out and up better, and performs better on the same hardware as PostGres, etc, etc, etc.

If you look at say the TPC-E or TPC-H benchmarks - you can see that MS SQL server also outperforms Oracle too in many use cases.
