Microsoft SQL Server is a relational model database server produced by Microsoft. Its primary query languages are T-SQL and ANSI SQL.

a set of programming extensions from Sybase and Microsoft that add several features to standard SQL, including transaction control, exception and error handling, row processing, and declared variables.

SQL Server is a powerful database/query engine from Microsoft. You don't need it for common home computer stuff BUT some programs such as accounting software install it and rely on it so don't delete it.

If it is on your machine and you're wondering if you should delete it, just leave it - it isn't doing any harm being there.
