I must now choose between the Sybase ASA and Microsoft MSDE database engines. Currently I am in favour of MSDE because for 500 USD I get:

1. Freely redistributable engine WITH NETWORK SUPPORT.
2. It can be used with any kind of application (I do not know if the similar Sybase licence allows to use ASA with something else than Power Builder application).

Am I missing something? Any comments on the stability of the systems?
