IFAIK the SQL server install is just for the engine. Also it was install form SD disk and pg from internet.

Also as I said, it was "a bit silly".

I think that before sending it around, ensure that they are comparing apples to apples.

SQL Server installs a bunch of management and integration tools along with the database engine.

I haven't seen the video (I'm at the office) but I'll be paying attention when I do.

I still think that it is painful to install SW in Windows once you get used to the Linux way but I also think that unfair comparisons are in detriment of the message.
