You can do the same under windows... however DM can do additional
- backward compatibility. It can emulate some function using others. For
example SQLExtendedFetch it's deprecated in ODBC3 and implemented in DM
for compatibility. FreeTDS it's an ODBC3 driver, it can provide
functions for backward compatibility but not required.
- logging. Very useful.
- parameter checking. More safety
