Quite a good product, but killed by its environment

SQL server in itself is one of Microsoft's better products. But.

- The possibility to run it on a sane OS came years after the others ate this part of the cake

- Licensing (for use on your own infrastructure) seems to be modeled around Oracle: Nobody understands it.

So thanks, but no thanks.
