Jim, "SQL Server" is the trade mark and product name for the main stream database product Microsoft sells. So, I am correct in writing the product name "SQL Server" without the prefix.
Would you write Oracle Oracle RDBMS when refering to Oracle? No; didn't think so - well, you might but nobody else on here or in the market place does.
I can only assume that you've not researched or just entered the database field if you've not hear of the product "SQL Server" from Microsoft; or, perhaps you are just trying to be a smart arse - my guess is the latter.
