Microsoft is only trying to raise some awareness for their new ASP.NET 5
multi-platform, which works closely with MSSQL. I don't believe they are
honestly interested in the *NIX user. They extend their userbase in the hope to
get them onto Azure.

1. MSSQL is not going to magically run well on Linux. It was never designed to
run on a *NIX platform and it long left the parts that would
(Sybase) in the dust.
2. This is actually good for us. It validates our primary deployment platform.
Why run a closed source MSSQL when you can get Open Source PostgreSQL on the
same platform major platform?
3. Competition is good when we have it, our community steps up.
