There might be lots of reasons. The biggest one is that it is almost certain that the SQL they are sending to SQL Server will not run without modification against MySql. Depending on which version of MySql you use, things which are heavily used in most SQL Server based solutions (like stored procedures and subqueries) may not even be available in MySql in which case you'd have to significantly change the SQL.

Data types can also be tricky - you may need to store data in MySql in types that are not completely compatible with the way the app is written.

In short - you could definitely make it work, BUT, depending on how the app is written - making it work could be anywhere from fairly simple to a huge undertaking.
