[freetds] Question on TDS and compatibility on SQL 2012

Hello James thanks for the warm welcome. I should correct myself typo - it's FreeTDS http://www.freetds.org/
At your organization/office do you use FreeTDS to "talk" to SQL Server? My workplace is using that with
SQL 2000 running on Windows and using an OSX PhP front-end for the web.
I'm wondering if I could upgrade the database from SQL 2000 to SQL 2012.
per the FAQ http://www.freetds.org/faq.html#What.is.FreeTDS maybe my question is answered:
Does version X of FreeTDS connect to version Y of my Microsoft or Sybase server?
"For the last several years, every version of FreeTDS has been able to communicate with every kind of TDS server. New servers sometimes introduce new protocol features, but the changes are small, and they're always compatible with old clients. Generally, you should use the latest version of the TDS protocol for your server. See the User Guide for details."

Sorry, a quick googlelation of "tdsfree" didn't turn up anything obvious. What is this thing of which you speak?
