I do not see how the MS rewrite for version 7 changes the history Daniel provided nor does it change the fact that SQL Server 2000 and Sybase still shared a hundred same named stored procedures for performing the same function within the database at the time SQL Server 2000 was released.

Is SQL Server 2000/2005/2008 Sybase, no. But the two products do share some history. As more time goes by more divergence is taking place but history is still history.
