45 today I learned how expensive SQL server is, and I now have a harder time to think of a reason for anyone/any company to buy it.

The cost is $1859 per core with a minimum of 4 cores. So... want to run it on a nice thread ripper? It will cost you 29744 dollar, and that is just 16 cores. Remember, its a database so more cores is more better.
