SonicMQ vs. MSMQ

Can anyone tell me the benfits of going with Sonic MQ over Microsoft MQ (MSMQ)? MSMQ is free with Windows XP Pro and Server 2003. Sonic costs a bundle. I can't seem to find any real benchmarks or comparisons between the two.

We will be integrating using Java and JMS. I have heard that MSMQ does not have a JMS provider so that will be a factor. The bottom line is that I am personally having a hard time justifying the price tag of Sonic when MSMQ seems to do the same stuff for free. We are looking at implementing message queuing in about 100 locations so the cost of Sonic is prohibitive.

Sonic will run on many different OS's. Does MSMQ?

Take a look at ActiveMQ.  Its what is bundled with Geronimo. You can get support if needed through both new (LogicBlaze) and old (IBM) companies.
