Default mySQL vs SQL Server

A friend of mine is a webmaster for someone currently running their ASP site off an Access database, but they are outgrowing it and thinking about moving to SQL. The requirement includes automatic synchronising of the database (in both directions) between a staging and production server.

Apart from the obvious differences in cost and support culture between open source and proprietary products, does anyone have any opinions from experience of the relative usability and ease of development of either/both systems? No MS bashing needed

(ISTR that years ago MySQL didn't support transactioning, but is that still the case?)
