I'd like to use a database-enabled version of a particular application (http://idimager.com), but it requires Microsoft SQL Server. My home ecosystem is powered by a Gentoo Linux server, and I'm curious what my options are.
The ones I can think of are:
- Get another box running Windows (Yuck - nothing against Windows, but I don't need two full time servers)
- Switch my Linux box to Windows (I do love my Gentoo tho, so I'd rather not)
- Run SQL Server under Wine (I'm scared that'll be slow, however...?)
Are there any other options?
