Thanks for sharing.

I love the ending:
Where once Linux was a cancer to Microsoft, now Windows is growing inside of Linux. ®

It reminds me vividly of the Alien movies.

Interesting...

So, SQL Server for Linux is not a first class citizen after all... Just a Windows app running on Linux using a small Windows kernel...

Native cross-platform development is not easy.. not even Microsoft was able to do it...
