Database Capability vs MS SQL 2005
SORRY,I posted to the wrong forum. I reposted to the GENERAL as suggested.

I am new to Linux and I would appreciate any help supplied here.

Here is my Issue:
I have designed an application and I am looking for a database that will support said design. I have identified that MS SQL 2005 supports it with the functionality called "Extended Properties". This function allows custom properties to be added/updated/deleted at multiple levels within the database (Database/Schema/File/Column). But, this requires the use of MS products (not something I favor). I would like to find a LINUX database that supplies the same functionality. I have looked but to no avail. Any help on the available databases will be appreciated.

Once completed, I plan to make the application Open Sourced.

I would rather develop in LINUX, the operating system of the future.
Thanks in advance.

Dunno about the technical stuff but MySQL claims to be the most widely used and fastest database thing in the forest. Should think it'll probably do most things.

Well, Linux supports MySQL, PostgreSQL and Oracle, possibly more, although Oracle is not certified on all distros.
Unfortunately, I don't know MS products, so you'll have to research those DBs yourself.
