Microsoft .Net on Linux: Last year Microsoft has brought some of the core features of its .NET platform — which has traditionally been Windows-only — to Linux and Mac. The company has announced its full .NET Core runtime for Linux and Mac OS. Now company is planning to bring SQL Server support on Linux which is still under private preview and expected to launch sometime next year. The release of .NET Core for platforms other than Windows is to fulfill the aims to meet developers where they are — instead of necessarily making them use Windows. The.NET Core and SQL Server are clearly part of this move. Microsoft want to use .NET and SQL on cross-platform in order to build and leverage a bigger ecosystem for it.
