Stupid project still propagandized
The fact that Tim Anderson would phrase SQLServer on Linux as ..."Some limitations but most things work" is poor recommendation for most all experienced Linux users who have for generations expected and received great performing SQL RDBMS that consistently outperformed Microsoft Windows and with SQLServer in every benchmark - Reliability, Scalability, Flexibility, Security, Return-on-Investment (ROI), and particularly "multi-platform" support - for Linux, UNIX, Mac OS X, BSD UNIX-like and even Windows.
Most senior technologists from several large technology firms, organizations and Database groups have commented to me that (paraphrasing) .."SQLServer on Linux is a complete waste of time since it does not compete well with stronger SQL databases, e.g. EnterpriseDB/PostgreSQL, and actually "does not run natively" under Linux for maximum configurability and performance.
How pathetic a situation is that for this "SQLServer on Linux" weird project, even for Microsoft Windows and applications users.
