mySQL versus MS SQL

Recommended Posts

not sure if this is the correct place to ask this  but here goes...

i have been developing a content mangament system that will run with both mysql and ms sql.  I developed the site on apache w/ mysql server and it runs fine.  Now i moved to over to IIS 6 with MS SQL and it runs terribly slow.  Most of the time i get timeout error loading a page.  I have went back through the code and checked for anything that could cause it and haven't found anything. 

I have tried it on 3 different IIS 6 servers with the same MS SQL database and they are all just as slow.  I guess my question is would it seems resonable to assume that MS SQL is a considerable amount slower than mySQL?  Does anyone know anything else i could try?
