On the day of March 7, 2016 Scott Guthrie – Executive Vice President, Cloud and Enterprise Group, at Microsoft, announced, on Official Microsoft Blog, very exciting news for all of us who are seriously dealing with online databases. Microsoft has released a preview of the SQL Server on Linux. As we can see in the article on Wikipedia, which brings a quote from W3Cook. The top one million Alexa domains, which as of May 2015 estimate that 96.55% of web servers run Linux, 1.73% run Windows, and 1.72% run FreeBSD.
