I've been using PostgreSQL for a few months now and am very happy with its
functionality and performance. Top-notch product that competes favorably
with every DB I've used.
However, most of my tables are still in MS SQL Server 2000 Enterprise. I
often have to make it my target for purposes of compatibility. On some
applications, the license costs are killers at around $400/client.
So, here's my thought. How difficult would it be to build a server daemon
that used PostgreSQL on the backend, and presented it to the network as a
SQL Server compatible DB?
Some of the work is already available in the 'tsql' client.
This must've been thought of before, but does this idea have legs?
