The answer is yes. You could download Oracle on your desktop and SQL Server for a long time now.

Use it in production, different story.

I downloaded and installed mySQL on my laptop without paying anything. Can I do the same with Oracle or SQL server? With SQL express ( coming with visual studio - bought) I don't get any GUI. With MySQL I even got a GUI lately.

Sorry Elena, Oracle recently purchased MySQL. When I say recently, I mean 4 years ago. To some on this list, that's recent :)

They pay the "MySQL price'. I'm totally confused, but okay.

MySQL is free, some companies may not want Oracle & Microsoft inter-dependence, thus they pay the mysql price.

It is not just DBAs or developers, yes there is a strict_mode that now 'fixes' a lot of the issues it has had, but when you can turn it off on the client session instead of fixing your app .... really not strict.

Many have compiled lists on the failures of the tool, yes you can use it and it is being constantly improved, but normally alternatives work better already. 

Here is just one of many (MANY) posts goign over the issues, there are many more but tend to be much harsher or not tackle the known workarounds and is recent enough to deal with 5.5/6 :
