Me and my team are developing a database software.We came a long way working with ms sql server.The project we are working on is also based on MsSql.Now , after we're done with the software , we'll sell it. But for quiet some time, a matter is bothering us . Which one should we use-mssql or mysql ? We've been working on our software for 2 months now and all this time,we've using mssql server . But still we're confused ! Because,if we make a software mssql server,when a user/client buys our product,he has to buy ms sql server as well(correct me if i'm wrong) to load the database we're providing with our product . Now coming to MySql, this one is an open-source . But as i've mentioned , our project is till this date based on mssql . SO, i really need your opinion . If u guys can, then please tell me which one i should go with ?

  • SQL Server has several variations including a free version, SQL Server Express, with limitations that runs as a separate service and an embedded version. We have been using the free version with our point of sale software since SQL Server 2000 15 years ago. As new versions come out we encourage people to update to a more up to date version. – Richard Chambers Oct 29 '17 at 22:50
