You are talking about connecting to SQL Server, Racke. I don't think
that goes anymore, but now it can be made to work with DBI and

You can also connect directly to MySQL with DBD::MySQL, or PostGres, or
Solid, or DB2, or Oracle. Surprise, surprise -- Microsoft SQL Server is
the only one without a Linux driver.
