Er.. it will *only* run on the most recent SQLServer - their repo is a
shim on top of SQLServers native XPath handling system, as far as I
could make out. From talking to them, they seem to have convinced a
SQLServer that it is really an RDF triplestore, and have added a few
gui things on top.
My actual advice to the first poster however, is that if you have no
resources (money and/or time) then don't bother with an IR - it will
require time, effort and probably money. If you feel up to putting in
that time and effort, then fantastic, but don't be mislead that it
won't suck up your time.
