    SQL Server is Microsoft's flagship database product: powerful, but expensive.

    MySQL is an open source (i.e. free) database.

    You'll have to read up on the specs of each and decide which is best for you.

    SQL also is the name of the query language, but you know that. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> SQL Server 2000 comes in a "light" version called MSDE that lacks all the nice wizards and administrative tools but can serve capably for a small workgroup. A redistributable version is included with MS Office Developer editions.

    As for MySQL, you're looking at it. This site runs on MySQL.
