MSSQL is supported only on windows.

Only the ones that someone has contributed patches for or have paid via
commercial support.  I believe there are several in the 32 bit solaris
builds (these run fine on 64 bit solaris).

I believe the only databases paid support provide on Solaris Sparc x64
are SQLite and Oracle (but e-mail sales at march-hare.com to be sure).
Similarly our first non-Windows platform for EVS is likely to be Solaris
10/Sparc and Oracle 10...

Basically the short answer is that when a customer pays for Solaris
Sparc support and requests MySQL or Oracle or whatever we then get that
working and the whole community benefits.  Equally if someone in the
community has lots of time or expertise they get it working themselves
and contribute it.  This is the basic freedom that free software gives
people: the freedom of having the source code and the freedom to modify
it (the freedom to contribute).
