Last weekend, I fired up SQL Server 2005. It was an upscale of an MS Access backend I was using. And my god, did it seriously help me get my app working!!
I used SQL Server for some projects a few years ago, and even trained up in it. And with it’s stored procedures, triggers, user definable functions, cursors, and calcualted columns it rocks! And it’s got a really neat IDE. I’ve also just discovered that Access 2007 can edit SQL Server object nicely. Sweeeeet.
So, oh so much better than mysql. And this is from someone who’s been using mysql for 3 years now.
Mysql’s great as a content store for sites, but if you ever want to RAD an Application, use SQL Server!
