Whatever answer, u can’t get satisfaction. Both are well in comparison.
See, Sql Server is more comfortable for Microsoft products users’ or for those who r addicted to use Windows OS. But I didn’t mean it doesn’t run on other OS, but helping 3rd party SW. Sql Server is more easy to use, cause it has well designed GUI features and friendly approach.
Where in comparison with ORACLE, of-course it is used widely than Sql Server…. cause it is more enhanced and comfortable with almost all OS without use 3rd party SW. Though I am providing a comparison chart for both :
The SQL Server advantages:
a) SQL Server is cheaper to buy than Oracle Database.
b) SQL Server holds the top TPC-C performance.
c) SQL Server is generally accepted as easier to install, use and manage.
The Oracle Database advantages:
a) Oracle Database supports all known platforms, not only the Windows-based platforms.
b) PL/SQL is more powerful language than T-SQL.
c) More fine-tuning to the configuration can be done via start-up parameters.
Now it is ur turn to decide !
