MySQL is easy to set up. In other words, just because something is open source, it does not necessarily follow that it's hard to set up.
Also, your Microsoft SQLServer solution doesn't seem so cheap when you factor in that the initial $1500 cost is only for 5 database connections, additional connection slots cost more and an appropriate Windows server licence is required.
