Darn, I'm going to have to call you out on that one (even though I just as much the Linux/OSS fan boy as the next). First off being tied to a platform isn't exactly a death sentence.

We've been running MS SQL (2000/2005) for 7-8 years without a hiccup (pretty competent performance monitoring tools too). I'd have to say it's one of the products MS got right.
