    Has anybody else here seen the announcement that SQL server 2016 will be available on Linux? I don't have access to link an article about it here at work, but I for one am rather excited about this. What is your take on this? Additionally, how do you think this will effect day to day operations for you in the future?

    With so little detail around the announcement yet, for me it's hard to say how much it will affect my day-to-day work.

    Of course, this initial marketing announcement said mid-2017, so I'm assuming that means a realistic date around 2018, which I in turn assume means the first stable release will be around 2019 or 2020 :hehe:

    Cheers!

    From a purely personal point of view, this is a Big Deal (TM), though, I acknowledge my personal use-case is probably a bit unusual. I mostly run Linux at home, and it would be nice to take the database engine I'm using at work (SQL Server) and install it on my home server (Linux).
