As others have said, it all depends on your available hardware and the type of DB you want to create. I have found SQL Server to be much easier to use (in general), easier to manage for most day-to-day taks, has better management tools and performs well on updates/deletes and good-enough on selects. Oracle has poorer management tools, but has many more configuration options readily accessible and performs better for querying, but unless configured to the Nth degree, has poor performance on inserts/updates/deletes.

If you know how to configure Oracle, I think you can squeeze better performance out of it on an apples-for-apples hardware comparison. Also, Oracle IMHO is more scalable to multiple servers, especially in geographically seperated situations.

Ultimately, I choose SQL Server because I just don't know how to configure all the options and SQL Server sets most things automatically and does a good enough job. About all you need to know specific to SQL server (beyond basic DB design) is how to use file groups. Also, the management tools for SQL Server are much better than the comporable Oracle tools.
