@Novex - Re: This is actually largely irrelevant

It is a situation but not a practical one. If SQL server gets rolled out on Linux regularly, the organization already has Linux/Unix staff to take care of that, they don't need to bring in a Windows guy. Conversely, if the organization has strong skills in SQL on Windows, they wouldn't run it on Linux, the Windows guys would successfully prevent that. Finally, when companies decide to standardize they get rid of *nix RDBMS completely to proudly become a wall-to-wall Microsoft shop.
