    depends on who is running the benchmark

    sounds like i'm kidding, but i'm not

    you will just have to test them yourself

    No contest SQL Server is much faster than either Barichello or Schumacher Ferrari.
    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.

    Will depend on who's designing/implementing the system.
    I suspect Oracle is more forgiving so if you are a total beginner your code is more likely to work reasonably on Oracle but it's less user friendly so you are less likely to get anything running (and maybe that's a good thing. You will get things running that appear to work on sql server but hit problems later.

    If you have experience then the system then you will implement a faster solution on the database you have most experience of.
    Don't think any differences in the databases will overcome that.
