It may not be for Ard, but it is for me - I'm specifically in the 
business of (as much as possible) Open Source s/w in Windows shops with 
legacy Windows dBs. Not because it's free s/w, but because my experience 
is that community support is better than commercial support.

Interesting. Will google for references. I've not encountered many 
issues, but my stuff isn't too complex, and high levels of concurrency 
aren't an issue (at the moment...)
