This is not correct. Only the Python mxODBC driver which is part of the
mxCommercial package is free for non-commerical use. However, due to
persistent abuse (we sell less than one licence for every thousand
downloads) we are reviewing this policy for future releases.

No (but then neither is MS SQL), but we have issued Minh Quang with an
evaluation licence and are prepared to extend evaluation periods providing
we are given full details.
BTW. a lot of people seem to be using mxODBC together with Oracle and
Oracle's Instant Client driver. Unfortunately if our support requests are
anything to go by the Instant Client driver seems to crash a lot.
