1. Express Edition is limited to a single instance on any server; 2. Express Edition may be installed on a multiple CPU server, but may only be executed on one processor in any server; 3. Express Edition may only be used to support up to 4GB of user data (not including Express Edition system data); 4. Express Edition may use up to 1 GB RAM of available memory.
If this is for evaluation purposes and not deployment, I believe Oracle allow you to download the full database product with none of the above limitations. You can download that from the same page.

I guess I'll answer the MS-SQL Server part of this question. Microsoft offers a complete line of versions of SQL server. At the high end, is the enterprise edition which runs about $8000 per server. At the other end, is the express edition (formally called msde) which is available for free.
The express edition is really limited -- in terms of size and features.
Now... If you just want to setup SQL server for development purposes -- meaning no deployment to production. Another option is the developer edition. The developer edition is basically the enterprise edition for development purposes only -- and at $40, it is a really deep discount from $8000 ...
I will rather prefer My-SQL which is supported by most of the linux based web-servers its light, and fulfills all the basic needs,cant tell you about the advanced one,because i haven't experimented My-SQL till that level.
Thanks and Regards, Anand

The download is simple, and you just extract the contents to your file system, and you have a working MySQL, apache web server, FTP server, mail server, and all the php and other plugins you might want to get going with web development.
