Licensing of dependencies
I am evaluating FogBugZ and noticed that it needs SQL Server.
Actually, it doesn't need SQL Server. You can use MS Access or MySQL.
There is also a workgroup version of MS SQL - MSDE - which is more or less free (the licensing is weird...)
Last I knew, MSDE doesn't include free text search, which is the main reason to use SQL Server in the first place. Unless of course you have really high traffic, in which case MSDE would certainly be better than Access. But for smaller loads, you might be just as happy with Access.
Ah - my bad, I hadn't realised that full text search was excluded, does move the goalposts slightly.
Dmitri: can you clarify "really high traffic"? We've got just under 1,000 bugs in our database (thankfully, most of them are closed!) and 3-4 developers who rely on FogBUGZ to tell them what to do next. Response times are acceptable without being spectactular.
