SQLSRV is not exactly a "driver": it's a completely different PHP extension to access SQL Server databases and it has its own syntax and features. It's a Windows-only library developed and maintained by Microsoft and it's not related to the built-in SQL Server extension described here.

(Whatever, it's quite feature-rich and it's easy to learn.)
