Because they sell a commercial SQL engine called 'MS SQL Server'. Microsoft
make NO money from your client succeeding with Firebird. Why would they
want to invest anytime in support in trying to help your client out, when
they can make grandeous statements to tell the client to get rid of Open
Source technology and just buy theirs.

Haven't you been watching the road shows that Balmer has been on over the
past 12 months trying to put fear & uncertainty in the minds of all IT
managers against Linux and Open Source?
