SQL Server 2012, Maybe?

On Wednesday of this week we spoke with Microsoft again about licensing for SQL Server 2012.  Apparently there was some confusion when we had the discussion back in March with management’s understanding of how it worked.  However, it still seems clear to me that reducing our Oracle footprint makes financially more sense.

In addition we are now being asked to prepare a proof of concept comparing the migration of ArcGIS SDE on Oracle currently to SQL Server or PostgreSQL.  I will be building a machine with each and running some tests.  Does anyone know any downsides to PostgreSQL compared to our beloved SQL Server that I can point out?  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
