Comparing full text search features of Oracle and SQL Server

How does Oracle's Full Text Search compare with SQL Server's in a Windows environment?

Oracle's Full Text search is a third party application that is plugged into Oracle and is priced separately from...

the Oracle server. The full text search that ships with SQL Server at no added cost has all of the base functions necessary to accomplish text searching capabilities. For something more detailed, you would have to refer to the documentation for both to determine the differences in features, functionality, and implementation. The pricing has no comparison because Full Text search costs you nothing as it is included with the product, whereas you have to purchase Full Text as an add-on for Oracle.
