I don't know of anyone building their own Unix based solution who would
bother to buy a commercial RDBMS when there are ample and appropriate
freeware options.  That goes double for anyone using one of the *BSDs,
even that commercial one....

(I still don't see how NT could possibly be cheaper than Unix in any
case -- the NT server license alone should pay for quite a few
consulting hours [you shouldn't need a top level expert -- maybe even
just a good co-op student] if you don't already have in-house systems
