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.
