Microsoft sets date for SQL Server on Linux

Re: This is actually largely irrelevant

Those commenting in support of SQLServer on Linux "supposedly" due to lack of excellent databases that run in both environments, like latest PostgreSQL 9.4 - that is competitive in all the advanced features and functionality with SQLServer 2016, and even has large scale commercial support from companies like EnterpriseDB, investors of which include IBM and RedHat, amoung others.

The evidence is in recent case studies where PostgreSQL successfully replaced sophisticated Oracle Database solutions in several Fortune 500 corporations and large engineering and other business industries, in a reasonable time with greater efficiency and ease, and with considerably savings overall.

The reality of PostgreSQL being equal to or superior in competitiveness to SQLServer is always refuted by delusional Microsoft loyal dupes.
