Ok, but I thought the main reason people want an enterprise database is
to get commercial support. There's no way Microsoft is going to support
a Wine-based installation. I'm guessing you're supporting some existing
application that only runs on MSSQL. For all new development, surely
you'd want a database designed for Unix.
