PostgreSQL is as close to ANSI SQL 92 as you can get, and it is still
improving.  Even though it may not be 100%, I would say it is at least
99.9%.  Try it out before judging it.  Afterall, it is *free*.  :-)

MS SQL Server????  [Anthony fainted...]

Please try out PostgreSQL first.  It is full-featured and support
transactions, etc.  You could also try MySQL, which is very fast, but
lacks some functionality in PostgreSQL.

PostgreSQL rivals Oracle 8 and MS SQL Server in functionality.  It is
a professional RDBMS.
