Speaking from a commercial perspective. I have had, in the last 60 days 
over a dozen inquiries of how PostgreSQL 8.0 on WINDOWS compares to 
MSSQL. The specific question
topics have been:

1. Reliability
2. Performance
3. High Availability
4. Features

Anything that we can do, within reason to help the migration from MSSQL 
to PostgreSQL "is a good thing" (tm).


Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
