    Here is something that is not a joke: Microsoft is working on getting sql server running on Linux by next year.

    This is a really good one.

    I wish it is true because MySQL's programming capability is far behind SQL Server T-SQL.

    Is the Apr.1 joke becoming our wish list? The classic one of SQL on Linux is coming true soon.

    Frankly t-sql scripting is better than either PL/SQL or whatever MySQL currently offers. I've administered all 3. The flow control in sqlplus or mysql is pretty lacking. All of my scripts had to be written as shell scripts. With SQL Server I can do everything right in t-sql and never have to leave the DB engine.

    Nice joke. I almost bought into it until I recalled what day it was.

    Really nice piece. I'll readily admit that I was thoroughly fooled right through the end. And that takes some doing. But I already knew that MySQL supports several different DB engines and an additional one would be just that. To support T-SQL would actually make a lot of sense. Or so I foolishly thought. 😀

    Personally I'm waiting for DB2 on MySQL.

    That doesn't make as much sense, I think. The DB2 database is already available on nearly every platform.

    Actually there is a fork of MySQL 5.5 that supports ANSI-2011, PL/SQL, and T-SQL 2012. In addition to that, it has distributed scale out capability.
