Microsoft SQL Server Reviews:
I realised no matter how good you are with any tool, there is always something new to learn.
Short Comparison of ORACLE 18XE and MS SQL Express 2017: if you only look at the CPU, I would take MS SQL Express 2017.
Microsoft SQL Server is about environment and ease of use. It has come a long way, and while I wouldn't use it for large-scale projects anymore because of cost, it is more than capable of handling the task. SQL Server does have unique features that make it easier to develop with and make it pretty robust too.
MS SQL Server's text search is far superior to PostgreSQL's. Otherwise, not a huge difference.
It does have features that MySQL and Postgres don't have, and it also is missing some features that those have. It's a different product. Enterprises use it because they sign contracts with Microsoft to use all Microsoft products, and then they get support from Microsoft when things go wrong.
