Microsoft, MSSQL + Linux : genius or desperate?

Today, Microsoft announces that SQL Server is coming to Linux — the free operating system that former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer once likened to "communism" and a "cancer."


Just what the hell is happening? LOL!

Sounds like Bernie Sanders and vaccinations are Illuminati-ing the Thetans.

Personally I think is brilliant!
I've never been a OS warrior for either side, I understand both as tools that allow me to accomplish different tasks... I have work (with certain grief, I must admit) on Linux servers running PostgreSQL in cases where GIS data needed to be stored and deployed over a network intranet and would choose Linux over Windows any day for a web server, but I love MSSQL and the whole Windows OS in general, specially for developing (and gaming)... More than that, my work environment is powered by Microsoft products so...

Anyway, back to MSSQL to Linux... awesome, the more the merrier, right?

I think that for a long time it was necessary to do so. I am looking forward to what will happen next.
