SQL Server doesn’t particularly care for deadlocks. If one occurs, SQL Server will automatically select one of the processes as a victim and kill it. SQL Server selects the process with the least cost associated with it, kills it, rolls back the associated transaction, and notifies the responsible application of the termination by returning error number 1205.

SQL Server Express is an alternative to using Jet and really should be used in place of Jet for any serious database.

MySQL MySQL is a developer ’s tool embraced by the open source community. Like Linux and Java, it can be obtained free of charge and includes source code. Compilers and components of the database engine can be modified and compiled to run on most any computer platform.

You see? Databases are the sun of the IT solar system! In the coming months and years you will most likely find more and more applications storing their data in a SQL Server database, especially if that application is carrying a Microsoft logo. Microsoft Exchange Server doesn’t presently store its data in SQL, but it will. Active Directory will also reportedly move its data store to SQL Server. Microsoft has been exploring for years the possibility and feasibility of moving the Windows file system itself to a SQL-type store.
